Cooked Crack Posted March 6 Share Posted March 6 Quote A group of fifth grade Hoover girls forced to play boys in a recreational youth league were not recognized as champions despite winning the league title when the trophy was instead awarded to the boys who lost the game, according to parents. The girls, who played in a competitive girls’ league for three years representing Spain Park, were told they could not continue to use Hoover gyms for their practices unless they joined the city’s youth recreational league and play with boys, according to Jayme Mashayekh, whose daughter was on the winning team. Quote In a Facebook post that went viral, Mashayekh said the girls were told before the title game that they could play in the championship “but if they won they wouldn’t be allowed to have the trophy.” “Excuse me? What?” What did they do to get disqualified? Did they not pay their dues? Did they not play up a level in competition? Oh, it’s because they’re GIRLS?!?!” Mashayekh wrote. “So sure enough these 5th grade girls played their hearts out, left it all on the floor and battled their male counterparts only to be told, ‘No, I’m sorry you don’t count,’” she added. Mashayekh later updated her post indicating that the city and the Hoover Rec Center offered to “make things right for the girls,” but it was unclear what steps were being taken https://www.al.com/news/2023/03/hoover-girls-denied-basketball-trophy-after-winning-championship-against-boys-im-sorry-you-dont-count.html This is going to be the leading story on Fox, right?
