Although compliance with Title IX requires a comparison of
boys’ and girls’ sports on a programwide basis, McCormick and Daniels I
demonstrate that disparate treatment of male and female teams for the same
sport may be significant enough to violate this law. What constitutes an
illegal disparity for purposes of Title IX? Other cases in which female
athletes have prevailed in unequal treatment claims at the high school or
college level include Communities for Equity v. Michigan High School Athletic
Assn., 178 F. Supp. 2d 805 (W.D. Mich. 2001); Landow v. School Bd. of Brevard
County, 132 F. Supp. 2d 958 (M.D. Fla. 2000); Ollier v. Sweetwater Union High
School District, 768 F.3d 843 (2014); and Parker v. Franklin County Community
School Corporation, 667 F.3d 910 (2012).
