Sports and schools



Are all sports created equal?

The popularity of sports in high school settings is commonplace. Sports build self esteem, friendships and character. Students working together as a team learn what team work is all about. So, does that mean that all sports are welcome in a high school setting? What about Lacrosse as a high school sport? Should it be included in the traditional roster of sports at your high school?

Look in the St. Petersburg Times sports pages today. What sports are featured most prominently? Are there sports in season that are not included in the coverage? Why do you think that these sports have not been included in traditional sports coverage?
