Olympics Related Question
Well, a sports question anyway.
Re: woman's field hockey.
I know a fair portion of the woman's field hockey team is from my area of the country.
How popular is woman's field hockey where you live? I recall hearing years ago, that it's sort of a local thing (I live in the Philadelphia megalopolis), and that in other areas of the country it's often a men's sport.
Around here, every high school has a woman's hockey team. It's THE big sport for women--like football is for men. It's extremely rough, extremely hard-played, very intense. Up there with football in the injury dept. because the girls are wicked playing it. AND (take a look at the US woman's team) it's always played in skirts--that's a conference rule.
So, I was just wondering if your high schools have field hockey, is it a woman's or men's sport, and how popular is it?
