A2: Sports

John U. Bacon’s commentary on Michigan Radio this week looks at the aftermath of a gender discrimination lawsuit against the Michigan High School Athletic Association, which resulted in some girls’ sports changing seasons: “Once lawyers determine that something is legally defensible, nothing else seems to matter – including the law of unintended consequences. High schools across the state are now struggling to find enough coaches, referees and facilities to meet the demands of running boys and girls teams in the same season. Some schools have to schedule three boys and three girls basketball teams for one gym every day – which means someone has to start practice at 10 p.m. on a school night.” [Source]
