: : : Truth is the girls now play before or after the boys at same venue. Was never like this in past. Reason why it happens now is the girls need to take from the boys revenue.
: : Who cares..?
: Not true. Some leagues have had the girls play with the boys for quite some time. It cuts down on staffing needs for the school, allowing you to knock out 2 staffed games in 2 nights instead of 4. Plus, revenue from games do not go to the teams, but to the ASB general fund. In fact, having them play on the same night could actually see less realized revenue since paid tickets would in effect be for a double header.
: Do girls benefit crowd-wise from playing with the boys, of course, and what is wrong with that?
One league first round boys varsity plays at 4:45 and girls varsity plays at 6:30, (many fans leave after boys game), second round of league girls varsity plays at 4:45 and boys at 6:30 so girls get bigger crowd in second half. It feels better than having a bunch of fans leave after boys game in first round.
