Of Hockey and Gender: Why a Female Player Wants to Keep Playing With the Males

Reporter Mark Hayward talks with All Things Considered host Brady Carlson about the story of hockey player Shelby Herrington.

Bishop Brady High School in Concord kicked off its boys’ hockey season last night with an 8 to 1 loss to Manchester’s Trinity High School.

Zach Frament scored Bishop Brady’s lone goal, with an assist by Shelby Herrington, who happens to be the only female player on Bishop Brady’s boys’ hockey team.

Whether she remains on that team for the rest of the season remains to be seen.

Reporter Mark Hayward wrote about Shelby Herrington for the Union Leader. He talks with All Things Considered host Brady Carlson about the team.
