WINAMAC, Ind. (AP) - A northern Indiana school district and the parents of a 12-year-old girl have resolved a lawsuit filed after the girl was told she couldn't try out for her seventh-grade football team.
The American Civil Liberties Union of Indiana filed a lawsuit last month on behalf of the girl, saying she was told girls couldn't join Winamac Community Middle School's all-male, seventh-grade football team.
The Pharos-Tribune reports the girl's parents met earlier this month with the superintendent of the Eastern Pulaski Community School Corp. and resolved the dispute. The lawsuit has since been dismissed.
Superintendent Dan Foster says the deal will allow the girl to play in a game after she's completed 10 practices at the school in Winamac, about 45 miles southwest of South Bend.
