Why is a team winning by a wide margin in high school sports looked down upon?

I see stories every now and then for a high school team being shamed for positively dominating another team; maybe winning by something like 100 to 0 in a Basketball game or something like that. Often the team will have to apologize for winning so hard, and the coach may even be called upon to step down.

Why? Shouldn't people be more upset with the losing team for being so awful?
