The game takes place the day before Thanksgiving, and teams sometimes practice for weeks. One female Newton South student told the Globe that rather than being sexist, the event is a "celebration of women's sports."
Stembridge wrote in a letter that the game has resulted in girls getting hurt, including three concussions and one serious knee injury last year and broken bones a couple of years ago.
