ST. LOUIS, MO — The mother of a Ladue High School student took her case to the federal courthouse after her son, called John Doe in legal documents, did not make the varsity soccer team and was not allowed to play on the J.V. team.
Friday morning Ladue school officials said if a junior does not make the varsity team, the boy cannot play again on the junior varsity team.
The mother of a Ladue junior who did not make the varsity cut does not think that’s fair.
She believes her son, who already played on the J.V soccer team, is good enough to play again on the same team.
The coach sent the family an email that said their son was on the bubble when it came to picking varsity team members.
In the courtroom testimony from the coach indicated the seven juniors cut from the varsity team were not good enough to play with on the J.V. team.
The judge did not decide today if John Doe will be put on the junior varsity team as his mother wants. »
