When Coed Sports Aren’t

The recent (Feb 16-18) state wresting tournament in Denver, Colorado included a host of guys... and one girl. The girl lost her first match and her consolation match.
Generally coed sports are fun and recreational in nature. Slow-pitch softball comes to mind. A state wrestling tournament is dead serious for the most part. The tourney should not have been coed. The male opponent would have been better served to either disqualify himself, immediately allow himself to get pinned or just refused to wrestle until the officials did the disqualifying. Who knows? Such chivalry may have been met by reassignment with a male opponent. The fact the matches went forth testifies poorly on several fronts.
