When looking at those numbers together, you’re probably not thinking it’s a basketball score… but it is. Last week in Utah, Christian Heritage High crunched West Ridge Academy 108-3. That added up to 28 points in the first 3 quarters, a...more

Maya Moore was named to Glamour’s Top Ten College Women list. Although they describe the 10 women as “amazing women you haven’t heard of yet” and I’ve obviously heard of her, that’s a pretty cool honor!   Here&rs...more

This past week I was able to attend the Western & Southern Women’s Tennis Open here in Cincinnati.   I was impressed by the new facility. The new media floor is incredible. But there was something that impressed me more than the new build...more

Tennis is always a fun sport in terms of fashion. And when I was at the W&S Women’s Open here in Cincinnati yesterday, I was having some outfit envy. Two women/dresses stood out to me in particular: Maria Sharapova and Ana Ivanovic. Usually,...more

In America, we’re all about the scores, the highlights, and the numbers…. So let’s take a look at some Title IX numbers: In 1972, the average number of women’s sports teams offered per school was about 2… now, 38 years la...more

What Title IX means to them...
posted on June 28, 2010 at 6:40pm

If you were paying any attention to sports last week, you know last Wednesday was the 38th anniversary of Title IX. So during the week I decided to talk with some female athletes and other women in sports that I've come in contact with to hear about what ...more

What is Title IX?
posted on June 22, 2010 at 10:03pm

It seems pretty simple. Girls should have the same opportunity to play sports as boys. But that's not all there is to Title IX. The first thing to know (that I'll admit I didn't really realize before) is that in the 37 words that make up the federal law ...more

D3: For the Love of the Game

I blog about recent news and topics in Division III sports.

And then there were 2: the National Championship Game
I was planning on tweeting from the Final Four games tonight... but just about the time that it was obvious the Wash U/Amherst match-up would head into overtime, Twitter stopped working on my phone. Perfect timing, I know. So to sum it up:Amherst led Wash...[Read on]
