Boy On Field Hockey Team Creates Controversy

Jim Castelli writes "Lisa Knight, field hockey coach of Martha's Vinyard High School Field Hockey team complained about Nate Coolidge playing on the girl's field hockey team from Sandwich. After losing to the Sandwich team coach Knight stated, '...Coolidge has no business competing with girls....I'm big on equality in women's sports...In this country, it's a female sport...Men are going to be bigger, stronger, faster. He's clearly the dominant player on the field. Without him Sandwich would not be the team they are.' But men and women are equal, aren't they Lisa?" You can read the Boston Globe article here.
