No Shirts, No Service

Westwood track coach fired after boys run shirtless

Massachusetts:

Boys track coach Tom Davis was fired and escorted off the property at the high school on Friday.

Davis said the incident was about members of his team practicing without a shirt.

Davis, who was in the middle of his second year with the outdoor team, said he first heard about complaints about running shirtless a couple weeks ago and that Westwood High athletic director Karl Fogel told him that the administration was discussing the issue and that there was no rule against it, but that there were people who did not want them running shirtless.

The team was undefeated under Davis. They lost their first meet without him.

If the boys’ team is required to run in shirts, I wonder what the girls’ team is required to run in.
