Girls vs. boys team
So parents sue the Williamsport Area School District to have their girl be allowed to wrestle on the boys team! Is this an attention getter or what? Why not have all you go getter girls form your own teams? State-wise! Football possibly, but girls, beware of the bumps and bruises. Wrestling is more intimate, touchy-feely, one-on-one. What happens if a boy uses the ol’ Indiana hook on her? If you don’t know what that is, ask a wrestler.
Also, what happens if a boy has to wrestle a girl and loses? How’s his teammates react? Or how abouts this boys own ego dealing with this? Humiliation, quit the team, a busted ego? To me this idea is about as stupid as the Olympics thinking of eliminating wrestling from the Olympics. Wrestling was, is, always been part of the Olympics from the beginning. Oh, and by the way, the Olympics have separate teams for wrestling, track and field, etc., for a man and a woman.
Please, parents, if you want to sue the recovery of some right or the regress of some wrong, please use it for that purpose not to boost your daughter’s ego and to maybe bust a son’s ego. Get real! This is no victory to me!
God be with you and your loved ones. I lean on Proverbs 3:5 and 6.
