Unless you're a rookie reader, you know all about the Title IX issues in Massachusetts high school swimming.

Guys swimming in the girls' state meet ring a bell?

Newbies can catch up near the bottom of this mega-blast-from-the-past-post.

Read more here.

Remember that committee they formed to tackle the issue? Been on the edge of your seat, waiting to hear their solution to the problem?

It was easy - they're going to eliminate the fall high school season.

Last month, a subcommittee of the Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association recommended that fall swimming for both boys and girls should be eliminated by the 2015-16 school year. The full Swim Committee at the MIAA, which oversees high school sports programs across the state, will consider the proposal next Thursday.

Let the suin' begin!

Thanks for the heads up, DJA!

It would take a pretty "manly' young man to be proud of winning a state title in "girl's" competuition, even if it was just to prove a point. His Dad should really be proud!
I hope the feminists and the title 9 gurus are proud now.
What a mess...
