n the sports world people often do not acknowledge female sports as much as men's sports. Women sports are newer and hence the reason for them not getting the recognition they deserve. But the sports world is starting to see how women's sports can be just as interesting and exciting as men's sports can be. I am going to show you some discrepancies between women and men's sports. Women and men's sports should each have equal opportunities.

I come from a small little town called Schuylerville but sports were still very important at my school. I was always a big part of that. Our school is mostly known for our field hockey team. When I was in seventh through ninth grade everyone talked about them. We had this awesome team that went undefeated for those three years. The leaders of this team were a boy and a girl (even more specific a brother and sister combination). Jared (an 8th grader in the beginning of this run) and Abby (who was in 10th grade) lead the team. It was amazing to go watch them play and you would see half of Schuylerville there cheering them on. In Schuylerville you were pretty well known if you played sports. No one will ever again get the treatment that Jared and the girls on that team got. Abby is now a senior for North Carolina and Jared is now on European traveling teams. Everyone in my town thinks that the streak ended because Jared was not allowed to play after a certain age or after his body mass became too strong for the high school girl's hockey league. I guess we will never know how much longer the streak would have been alive. For a little while, in this one small town, girl's sports actually got the recognition that it deserved.

My parents brought me up to think that girls could do sports just as well as boys. I guess it started when I was the batboy for my parent's girl's baseball team from age two years to the age of five. This girl's team was really good and when they played against the boys' teams they actually did
