News: judge throws out Marist player’s lawsuit, former UW players unite for a cause

Katheryn Lyons’ lawsuit was dismissed last month by a judge. Lyons had claimed discrimination after school officials suspended her and rescinded her scholarship after they found she was suffering from psychological problems. What a sad story.

In Seattle, former University of Washington players have united to help another former teammate who suffers from Multiple Sclerosis. I would comment on the story, but I’m too disturbed and bothered by the fact that longtime Seattle Times sports columnist Steve Kelley referred to former UW coach June Daugherty as “Jill Daugherty” in the piece. The copy editors didn’t catch it either, as they put the errant name in the online subhead, too.
