I am at my wits end.... I emailed our highschool wrestling coach last MONDAY... it was a late start day due to weather... well the kids have had practice at 6:30am and at 3pm... okay so if it is a two hour late start for school... when would practice start??? yeah... IDK either!!! but the MALE coach (that is all we have) has not answered me... I have sent three emails in the past week. We have two girls on our team. They are discriminated like you would not believe. He does not tell them when they could have a match.. he just doesn't take them! then the next day they find out... oh you could of had a match. They are suppose to go to Districts on Saturday well I think Saturday.. no one will answer my question. I have no paperwork that says what day it is...where it is or anything. We are low income right now... due to husband being on unemployment. But they don't tell me she is going away on a two day trip til the day before! acutally they did not tell us at all... it was thru a text message from the other girl! I am at my wits end... what would you do!?!?!?!?!

Have you tried talking to the principal? If you can't get satisfaction from him/her, I would call the Board of Education to find out who you can talk too. Do you have a local paper? They made the team, so they need to be treated just like the boys.

Oh now that it has been a week plus, i have forwarded again with copies to the principal... who knows... There was an article in the paper about one of the big trips that both the guys and girls went to... well yeah the guys were all mentioned... but no where was the girls... so there is a place to add comments to the article... soIdid... some guy replied probably cause they were not there... and then I replied to him "I beg to differ" and told him the scores... NOTHING has been said since... so Ithink I might mention it the reporter and see what he says to me... WIll have to come back and start a new discussion on that one! LOL
