The Middlesex League Athletic Directors had a regularly scheduled meeting, on Tuesday, December 4, 2012. At the meeting, it was brought to the attention of athletic directors that some student-athletes from women's basketball teams in the Middlesex League met on the evening of December 1, 2012 to discuss changes that were made to the ML-12 basketball game schedule on November 20, 2012. A change in the game schedule was made on November 20th in an effort to comply with a gender equity complaint that had been brought to the attention of Middlesex League school administrators. Although the statement sent to the attention of the Middlesex League by the student-athletes was heartfelt and compelling, the athletic directors of the Middlesex League have reaffirmed their decision to keep the schedule as set on November 20.
The 2012-2013 Middlesex League basketball schedule will have boys and girls teams playing in opposite locations, with all varsity start times on Tuesday and Friday being at 7 pm.
We look forward to supporting all of our programs and seeing all of you in the gym this winter!
