Baseball Team Forfeits Because Of A Girl

This one is really surprising to me.  I’m not at all into sports and don’t really care who plays, wins, loses, strikes out and so forth.

But it’s beyond me why a team would work so hard to get to the state championship game and then forfeit because the other team has a girl.  They claim to be standing on religious principle, which I would normally respect, but this seems a little ridiculous.

The story is out of Arizona.  It involves Mesa Preparatory School and Our Lady Of Sorrows Academy.

The latter forfeited the state championship game, saying playing it would violate their mission of teaching boys and girls separately.   Separation of the sexes is apparently a key belief of the Society of St. Pius X, of which Our Lady of Sorrows is a part.

Oh yeah, did I forget to mention that Mesa Prep has beaten Our Lady Of Sorrows twice?

What do you think?  Are they doing the right thing or are they being unreasonable?  Is that an excuse to avoid being beaten in the championship?  Would you be upset if this was your daughter?  What if it was your son on the team that forfeited?
