At the conclusion of last season, the website was passed on to Coach Becker, who in turn asked Matt Jones
to take over the administration.  The transfer and transition has taken longer than we anticipated, we
hope to have the current schedule, team information and Dave Kindred’s blogs uploaded soon. 
Please bare with us.  In the meantime, you can read Dave Kindred’s game by game blogs at;

The renowned sports journalist, Mr. Dave Kindred has only missed a handful of Lady Potters games since he first started coming five years ago.  Since moving back to the area after spending the last 45 years traveling the globe in search of yet another sports story, Dave has found comfort in being a "fan".   He isn't sure how many times he had to repeat the line "I'm not a fan, I'm a writer" throughout his career.  Being a fan can cloud the objectivity of capturing those wonderful sports stories we often read.  But now, Dave feels at peace with just enjoying Morton Lady Potters basketball.

"There’s something to be said about the purity of simply playing
hard without having millions of dollars on the line."

Celebrating 43 years of Title IX !  June 23, 1972,
37 words that changed history!
It was a small part of the Equal Opportunity in Education Act, signed by President Richard Nixon on June 23, 1972:
"No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in,
be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity,
receiving federal financial assistance."
Thank you Mr. President!
