178. Not sure if you'd call a cheerleader a "great athlete".
Edited on Wed Jan-26-11 09:53 PM by Esurientes
I've worked in public schools for nearly 20 years and the only student I've known who got into big trouble for attending out-of-district was a cheerleader. She'd worked hard to get on the varsity squad at a certain school, so when her family moved across the county she used a relative's address to stay at her old school and on the squad.

A jealous classmate's mother called the superintendent's office and reported her. After she was required to transfer to the new school, she didn't make it onto any of the athletic teams. (The new school -- mine -- was a real sports powerhouse back then, with 2500+ students. The one where she excelled at her sport had only 2-300 kids.)
