Seems like a somewhat appropriate place for this.
Boys Swimming on Girls Teams Find Success, Then Draw Jeers
During his first-period broadcast Monday, the Norwood High athletic director Brian McDonough congratulated Will Higgins for breaking the meet record in the 50-yard freestyle the previous day at the Massachusetts South Division fall swimming and diving championships.
McDonough chose not to mention that it was a girls swimming championship.
Higgins, a senior, and Rodriguez, a sophomore, are among roughly two dozen boys competing on girls teams in Massachusetts because their schools do not have boys swimming programs. They are able to do so because of the open access amendment to the state constitution, which was voted into law in the 1970s and mandates that boys and girls must be afforded equal access to athletics.
Jay Mohr yesterday asked which school in MA is going to be the first to drop boys basketball and take the boys varsity players and put them on the girls basketball team and start destroying teams.
