On January 27, 2017 both C. Milton’s JV boys and girls basketball teams played Harford Tech at 3:30.

A crushing decision was made for the girls to play basketball in the back gym while the boys got the front gym.
The back gym was without a shot clock, had smaller bleaches, and the feeling of a shut off atmosphere.

Captain Emily Rutkowski commented that “playing in the back gym felt as if we didn’t play a game at all”.

The girls and boys at this school work equally hard in sports. However, they aren’t provided with equal opportunities to succeed.
Some might let this make them feel too insignificant to play their hardest.

Nevertheless, the resilient players didn’t let the decision bring their spirits down.  The winning score for C. Milton’s JV girls was 28-13.

Assistant Coach Mr. Brogley said that “this may be a reflection of how our students value their sport”.

Don’t let our bureaucratic school system weigh women down with unjust decisions.  Finding solutions that don’t make a gender superior to another is crucial is the movement of our society.
