Central PA Girl Will Be Allowed to Wrestle

District failed to justify gender segregation, judge says.

AP reports: “A federal judge has issued a preliminary injunction that allows a central Pennsylvania seventh-grader to be a member of the all-boys wrestling team at her middle school. In a ruling issued Monday, U.S. District Judge Matthew Brann said the Line Mountain School District failed to justify its reasons for preventing girls from wrestling with boys.” Which is too bad, really, because we thought the school district’s reasons for keeping the girl off the team were pretty funny.  [AP]
