Congratulations to Beth Clark on her 500th win as the head coach of the Hermantown Hawks girls basketball team on Feb. 13. Beth is originally from Cromwell, graduating in 1977. She was one of the first girls to play basketball when Title IX was instituted. She played on the varsity team in the seventh grade when Stan Verich and I were the coaches. Title IX prohibits federally-funded educational institutions from discriminating against students or employees based on sex. The Title IX education amendments were enacted into law in 1972. Now, look how far girls sports have progressed.
