I wanted to share this with the NGS family because I’ve been thinking a great deal lately about issues of girls and sports and access. This story, by my journalism school classmate Brigid Schulte, reminded me that Title IX wasn’t the final victory for in the fight for girls athletics, it was just the beginning of a battle we’re still fighting one field at a time. Please give it a read.

On a related note, the NGS administration and dozens of volunteers have been working hard to prepare for the Fall 2013 season. I hope everyone is looking forward to it as we are.

Enjoy the rest of the summer.

Ralph Ranalli, NGS President
