Serving Up Government

Title IX lives on... so does Volleyball!

The judge in the case wrote that "competitive cheer may, sometime in the future, qualify as a sport under Title IX," but that the activity is still too "underdeveloped and disorganized" to be treated as a genuine varsity sport, not a surprising opinion, based on what I've seen and heard.

I began cheering my freshman year of high school and it immediately gave me a confidence I'd never had before. It also made me appreciate what it takes to succeed in a competitive, challenging and dangerous environment - and isn't that the definition of a sport?

Isn't this a fight that should play out in the marketplace?
