No on from her school sees a problem with it and everyone i have spoke to only see it as she is a girl tryin to play a boys sport. I have call the news and papee but nothin is bein done so maybe if i get this started we will make it sone where not only for Shelbie my daughter but others that may follow her.. Thanks and hope we can get people to take a stand and let the voice of a girl be heard.

      Girls are just as good as boys and there is no reason why we shouldn't be able to play on boys team in a male dominant sport

      This is very important, but can you maybe rewrite the petition? It's hard to take seriously and this is such an important topic.

      If she can play safely, then let her. Don't discriminate against her just so you won't look different or "wussy" to other school districts.
