My granddaughter's Middle School doesn't have cuts. It's a small school and the principal believes anyone who qualifies grade-wise (2.0 or better) makes the team. And that goes for ALL sports (football, basketball, soccer, etc). The teams usually end up in the top three in the county in most sports, much to the dismay of the "bigger" middle schools who have cuts and umpteen players. A tribute to the coaching staff.
