HAMDEN, Conn. – A Connecticut high school apologized on Tuesday after its girls basketball team defeated an opponent who won 92-4.

Hamden’s Sacred Heart Academy (3-0) defeated Lyman Hall-Wallingford (0-5) on Monday night. The Sharks went 29-0 after a quarter, 56-0 at half-time and 80-0 after three quarters.

“The Sacred Heart Academy values ​​the lessons taught and nurtured through sports participation, including ethical and responsible behavior, leadership and character strength, and respect for competitors,” Sacred Heart President Sheila O’Neill said Tuesday. “Yesterday’s girls’ basketball game and Lyman Hall High School don’t fit our values ​​or philosophies.”

There is no mercy rule in high school basketball in Connecticut.

Lyman Hall coach Tom Lipka said Sacred Heart subdued his team to the press for much of the first half, and then moved on to a tough man-man defense for the rest of the game.

“They quickly broke the whole game to the end,” he told The Hartford Courant in an email. “They never entered the zone and continued to push the ball into the pitch as much as possible and hit 3 shots as much as possible. They showed no mercy. “

The Sacred Heart Academy defeated Lyman Hall 88-0 three quarters later.

O’Neill said his school is affiliated with Lyman Hall, the state’s high school sports watchdog, the Southern Connecticut Conference and the Connecticut Inter-School Athletics Conference. The school will also address the issue internally “to ensure that our sports programs continue to encourage personal, physical and intellectual growth,” he said.

“The administration of the Holy Heart Academy and the athletics are deeply sorry for the outcome of the game,” he writes.
