Women in sports media reflect on their time and subtle mistreatment in the field

Benbow loves her position and editors at the IndyStar. She said while they do a great job of putting male reporters on women’s sports, she still thinks they have a bit of a tendency to give her stories about women. For example, she was assigned a story on how the uniforms for women's beach volleyball are “nothing” compared to the men’s.

RETIREMENT FROM COACHING

John McGlothin: The story of a 30-Year coaching career

It’s Thursday, February 23. The last practice before Wes-Del’s final regular season game against Elwood. Warriors head coach John McGlothin blows his whistle after each minute and tells his team to switch shooters. The Warriors are partner shooting. “We do it at least three times a week,” McGlothin said. “Lots of shots, working on our individual game…I felt like when I was a younger coach, my teams didn’t take enough time just getting shots up.” For the winningest coach in Wes-Del history, this is what the winter weeknights have looked like for the last 30 years. But following the 2022-23 season, that routine will end with his retirement.

To some, it’s their skill level, their attitude or just how they play the game. Since taking over the beat writer position for Delaware County high school boys basketball earlier this season, multiple players have stuck out to me. This list is, in my opinion, the players who have improved the most from last season.
