School doesn't allow female referee to officiate

Crazy story out of Kansas from Wed Feb 13th. A female referee was scheduled to work a game and was all ready to go when a school official insisted she could not call the game. Reason: As a woman, she could not be put in a position of authority over boys because of the academy's beliefs. How ridiculous is that! Thankfully, the other officials present who were already working or asked to replace her walked off with her. Props to them.

Hopefully the Kansas State High School Activity Association cracks down hard on this.
