We need more women’s jerseys
Letter to the Editor | Tuesday, January 22, 2019
This weekend, I went to the [Hammes] Bookstore to buy a ND women’s basketball jersey. The clerk said there were no women’s basketball jerseys. I also checked the Internet. I can buy men’s basketball jerseys, football jerseys and cheerleader
outfits. It’s not fair that I can’t buy my favorite team.
The women’s team won the national championship. I think a lot of girls would buy a jersey. I think [athletic director] Jack Swarbrick should sell women’s jerseys for kids. More kids would cheer for the women’s team if they had jerseys.
P.S. Amelia met Arike [Ogunbowale] on Sunday at the game and the team gave her a wonderful gift of a custom-made women’s basketball jersey. But she still wants all the kids to have a chance to buy their own jersey.
