Softball parents want more

Parents of softball players at Millry High School in Alabama are not pleased with the treatment and facilities their daughters receive. They and some other concerned folks have written a letter listing their complaints and plan to give it to the county Title IX representative this week. (It seems to be a good sign that there is such a position and that people know who is in it.)
The grievances include a sub-par weight room, and playing facility which includes the field, dugout, and concession stand.
Parents also may be worried that the softball outfield will be used for football stadium parking because previous parking, according to the article is being taken away to make room for a new gymnasium.
Once the Title IX representative receives the complaint he will undertake an investigation.
