What's Up?

Q: I am wondering why the girl athletes at Payson High School are referred to as "Lady Longhorns" and boys are not referred to as the "gentlemen Longhorns." Shouldn't the expectations for both sexes be the same?

A: It is a matter of style and differentiating between the genders of the teams. Lady is used as a courtesy title in high school sports stories.
