  • Boy On Dennis-Yarmouth Field Hockey Team Draws Critics

    If it’s called the girls’ field hockey team, then why is there a boy on the field? That’s what some parents were asking as they watched Dennis-Yarmouth face off against Acton-Boxboro Tuesday with goalie Max Allen protecting the DY goal net. “Look at him lined up with everybody else. I mean, there’s such a physical difference,” said Maura Champigny watching her daughter’s team face Allen. “Having a boy in a field hockey net somehow doesn’t sit well.” It’s a battle high school sports officials have tested before. In fact the MIAA challenged the issue all the way to the Massachusetts...

    FRANKLIN — The MIAA Field Hockey Committee voted, 12-0, yesterday in favor of a rule change that will limit the role of boys in a girls’ sport. Saying, “I’m sick of boys dominating the game,’’ Gloucester field hockey coach and athletic director Kim Patience was one of many committee voices in support of limiting what boys may do in the sport. The three-part rule, which could go into effect this fall if adopted by the Board of Directors at its June 9 meeting, says:

    Wyoming Seminary in Forty Fort, Pa., is a traditional field hockey powerhouse, so it's no surprise that it's back in contention for a state title, with a berth in the state championship game on the line Wednesday afternoon in Seminary's faceoff with Crestwood (Pa.) High (the semifinal against Crestwood was originally scheduled for Tuesday afternoon but was postponed by bad weather). What is surprising is how Seminary is advancing through the playoffs, on the back of a male player who is singlehandedly dominating all Seminary's opponents.That player is Cornelius Tietze, a junior and German native who joined the Seminary field...

    SOUTH HADLEY – The Menard brothers don’t look at themselves as the best players on the South Hadley High School field hockey team, nor do they look at themselves as two of the best players in Western Massachusetts.

    Knickers in knot over undies Beijing - The Olympic dress code applies to places never seen, it seems, with the New Zealand hockey manager banished from the field at a crucial men's match because officials objected to his players' underwear. Kevin Marr was ordered to watch the must-win match against Germany from the grandstand as punishment for three players wearing black underwear beneath white shorts in an earlier match. Initially, the officials wanted to suspend the players involved - Bradley Shaw, Simon Child and Blair Hopping - but Marr successfully argued it was unfair because he was in charge of...
