Mack returns donations to Monte Vista, others

A story that generated lots of e-mails to myself and phone calls and e-mails to those involved over the past day has an added development. The Oakland Unified School District now says it will cover the costs for McClymonds to spend the weekend in Sacramento for Saturday night’s CIF Division I state championship game against Westchester-Los Angeles and Mack will be returning the donations to Monte Vista and others. The district says a miscommunication left Mack thinking there wasn’t money to cover the costs. OAL commissioner Michael Moore Sr. said in previous years the standard practice was for teams to scrape together money to cover these types of costs, but this year the OUSD wanted to and was planning to cover the costs itself although because it hadn’t been done before, Mack coach Brandon Brooks “didn’t have any way of knowing we were going to pay for it.”

Monte Vista, which lost to Mack 46-43 in Saturday’s NorCal title game, had learned of Mack’s lack of funds and raised $1,100 to help pay for the Warriors accommodations.
