Rainier Beach cancels baseball, softball seasons

Dwane Chappelle is trying to instill a strong academic culture at Rainier Beach.

The principal, in his first year at the school, is determined to make sure the Vikings’ athletes work as hard in the classroom as they do on the field or in the gym.

So, when academic issues made it difficult for the school to put baseball and softball teams on the field, Chappelle said the decision was made to cancel the seasons for both programs.

I have only talked to Chappelle a few times, but I continue to be impressed. While it wasn’t an easy decision to cancel the season, he stressed that it was in the best interest of the athletes in terms of setting a firm foundation in the classroom.
