Glad to read your post. I am working with parents in Michigan to
make girls' ice hockey a varsity sport there. We are trying to drum up
moral support from groups so that the state high school athletic
association takes our case seriously. MHSAA has been very anti-Title

gender equity in Michigan, including girls' ice hockey and revamping
seasons so that the girls play in the normal season? Kristen Galles,
