Isn't that insane? It's sad that she'll probably lose access to high school sports over this, rightfully so. I'm not sure how it is in our area, but I'm sure there are some scuffles.

I have not witnessed anything, but I am sure that it does. Dd plays tennis and lacrosse and there have been a few things in lax we have seen. I heard that the boys are worse, I guess I find out next year with ds!!
