    It mentioned Beechwood as being out of compliance in the 3 major tests but did not follow up and mention if that was a concern to anyone (school, KHSAA, community).

    The stats are kind of worthless because obviously any school with football, volleyball and both boys and girls soccer teams is going to have more male participation. Unless volleyball goes to a no-cut policy that isn't going to change.

    If Beechwood is not in compliance then are they subject to any sort of sanctions or reprimand?
    Hey Beechwood, if it means starting up soccer at your school then hold fast.
    It's not worth it.

    Good question. I would have assumed it would have been mentioned in the article.

    It'll change when they fine the heck out of the school or sanction them further. It would be nice if they'd count cheerleading at school to get the number of female participants up.

    They would be dead meat in a lawsuit if a lawyer filed suit representing the female athletes........ask the Boone County Schools.

    I would tend to agree.

    That's (cheerleading) is a can of worms you do not want to open.

    All you would have to do is state sanction the sport (give it a state tourney), and the problem is fixed. The KHSAA cracks me up.......everyone has to be Title IX compliant, or face fines. My question is, why isn't the girls bball tourney held in Rupp Arena???

    I don't think Title IX demands "exact" treatment. Diddle is fine. Its a D1 arena. Rupp is a D1 arena.

    Maybe Rupp doesn't want the girls tourney.

    Because you have the whole cheer for the school teams versus cheer on the competitive team controversy and then you have the "have to cheer at girls sports" controversy.

    That is a gray area.

    Title IX is more about equal "opportunity" and one could argue that the Girls Tourney players have not had the "opportunity" to be showcased at Rupp.

    Sort of similar to having the opportunity of playing in "prime time" games.

    The KHSAA does not accept Federal Funding so technically they are not required to adhere to Title IX.
