Girls Basketball... Like Watching Paint Dry.....

girls basketball

OUCH!!

 Was all I could muster after that shocking statement from a fellow agent in my office.    My daughter plays basketball for Pickerington North High School's freshman team.  They had an undefeated season this year, doing far better than their male counterparts, I might add.

Pickerington, Ohio is known for girls' basketball, being the home to a few state championships.  Several graduates have gone on to play for The Ohio State University and other great institutions.   

I would be the first to admit that back in the late 70's when I played high school sports our fan base consisted of a few faithful followers and often not even our own parents.  But today these girls have elevated their game and are pulling in a crowd.  Not yet to the level of the boys but a definite improvement and getting better...

So before you succumb to old assumptions do yourself a favor and check out the Lady Panthers and The Lady Tigers  ........they have some real Ballers!

Hi Vanessa - I'm sorry to hear that your colleague had that view of girls sports.  I was involved as a scholastic coach in Cuyahoga Falls for several years (10 years head soccer coach, 17 years wrestling coach) and even though I coached boys' teams I found girls sports to be packed with high levels of interest and enthusiasm.  Girls took to their athletic programs with a great level of intensity and played their games hard.  My daughter did her student teaching at Pickerington as she concluded her years at The Ohio State University.  Pickerington is not only a great school for athletics, it also has a great reputation for academics.

Jon,

thanks for the feedback.  I am a fan and attend games even when my daughter is not playing.  My husband is on the  PYAA (Pickerington Youth Athletic Assoc.) board for middle and high school girls basketball even though we do not have a child playing.  We strongly believe in girl sports and Pickerington is a wonderful area for that and yes academics too.
