BG Ams, yes - Mandabear (my partner) played with her at least one round, maybe more, I can ask her more specifics when she gets home tonight.

Not sure if Lacey is on DGCR but she just posted this apology on Facebook:

"I would like to publicly and sincerely apologize to the Professional Disc Golf Association, to my sponsors, to Kristi Moore and to Lisa Warner, to my Tournament Directors Ken Rollins and Sharon Jenkins and to my family and friends for my actions resulting in my recent suspension from the sport. It was never my intention to hurt anyone or discredit the sport in anyway. I take full responsibility for my actions and acknowledge my mistakes. I have also learned some very valuable lessons throughout this process and with the support of those people close to me. I have been a player, a contributor and a supporter of this sport as has my family for many years. I would like to thank those of you who have helped me through this difficult time. I am hopeful, in time I will be able to put this experience behind me and continue my work in this sport I love." - Lacey Brugler:

seems like a good enough reason to drop this thread. my 16-year-old did some stupid things, but I'm glad society let her move on.....

What Zontar wrote is correct but I can't resist:. The eleventh commandment, thou shalt not cheat, let thy father cheat for thee.

The stuff we do when we are 16 is amazingly stupid. The dad should be kicked in the butt if what is written here is correct. And hard too.

She is a 16 year old professional with 63 career wins, including World Championship titles. So I think discussing her suspension is very relevant, especially to those who have potentially been robbed of victories.

Anyone that has a problem with outing a pencil whipper, teenaged or otherwise, probably bends the rules themselves.

It's strange the things young athletes do in competitive situations. My son runs track in high school, and I've had the pleasure of watching some great meets. In our area, track and field coaches and parents are collaborative and supportive of each other and the athletes, regardless of school affiliation. People get to know the athletes in the region, and it's a great environment for kids learning to compete properly.

One runner at a different school was very good at her middle-distance events. At most league meets she blew away the field. It was clear that most people respected her for the amount of work she put in, and how for strongly she ran. However, at sectionals she was no longer the best on the track. On the final lap she was competing fiercely to fend off another runner, who was creeping up on her down the stretch. It was going to be close at the line. The crowd was cheering, and the atmosphere was really great. These girls were fighting for a position that was unimportant for advancement to the next meet, but that didn't matter. They're kids, and seeing them compete fairly and with vigor is why most of us are there in the first place. Anyway, this runner senses the other girl coming up on the outside, and she must have known she was about to be passed. As they approached the line, the runner in front put her arm out to bar the other girl from passing. There was an audible gasp from the crowd, and I saw her father shake his head.

Kids do dumb things sometimes, it's true. But if we're going to treat kids differently when they compete, they shouldn't compete with adults. They should compete in an environment where they're being taught how to compete.

Thank you for the clarification.
I wasn't being snarky, just wanted to know the details.

I'm not sure a public apology counts if they don't actually fess up about what they did.

Everything goes off of the rails when she says," my actions resulting in my recent suspension". The classic I'm sorry I got caught apology.
