Documentary tracks evolution of girls' high school sports since Title IX
This interview posted above is from SDPB's daily public-affairs show, In the Moment, hosted by Lori Walsh.
For many South Dakota towns, high school sports are more than just an activity. They're a symbol that represents community pride, hard work, and the ability to overcome challenges.
Girls Got Game, a documentary that highlights the evolution of girls high school sports in South Dakota since Title IX, airs this week on SDPB.
It tells the story of the women who fought to make sure girls had the same opportunities as their male peers, and the coaches, athletic directors, and students who led their teams to victory.
Producer Nate Wek joins Lori Walsh on In the Moment to talk about some of the trailblazers featured in the film including Ruth Rehn, Jo Auch, Lolly Forseth, and Becky Hammon.
Girls Got Game airs Thursday at 8 p.m. CDT, 7 p.m MDT on SDPB-TV.
