High School Pole Vaulter Curses, Team Loses State Title

In the world of sports, cursing is something that is frowned upon but one high school track team is feeling the brunt of the use of one bad word.

Loyola High School was attempting to win a State track championship but eventually lost due to a curse word hurled by a pole vaulter:

We get more from Off the Bench:

Loyola High School pole vaulter Evan Barr was disqualified from the event at the state championships on Saturday when he cursed loudly after failing to clear his last attempt. Still, he finished tied for third; giving Loyola enough points to edge Long Beach Poly for the title.

But because he cursed and was disqualified, Barr’s points were also taken away. So Loyola lost the title to Poly, 35 points to 32.
I guess you can say that the old saying, "If you have nothing nice to say then say nothing at all", applies here.
