Coach's status unclear

February 13, 1999

The status of Boonsboro boys basketball coach Denny Talbert is still in question after his absence from the Warriors' game Thursday at Smithsburg.

Talbert missed Thursday's game for undisclosed reasons. Chuck Ingram, the Boonsboro junior varsity coach, was on the bench for the game. Ingram had no comment on Talbert's absence.

On Tuesday, after a loss to North Hagerstown, Talbert said his team had "packed it in" and that they were only "going through the motions."

Talbert is in his first season as a head coach after working as a junior varsity coach at North Hagerstown. The Warriors are 6-14 this season.

Eugene Martin, supervisor of athletics and physical education for Washington County, and Boonsboro athletic director Jeff Barnhart both said any comment on Talbert's status would come from Boonsboro principal Dr. Helen Becker.

"We are not at liberty to comment," Martin said. "We're at the point where it is a personnel issue, and any information would come through Dr. Becker."

Dr. Becker was not in school on Friday and could not be reached for comment.
