Pam Shively

Yesterday I did an article on the practice of hiring men to officiate high school games over women even when the woman would be equal or better than the man.  This is the case for Pam Shively of East Central who is in much better condition and ability to referee high school boys games than many of her male counterparts.  I recently had a conversation with Pam, and she related the reluctance of most schools to give her the opportunity  to referee boys games.

Pam not only referees basketball games, but she also is an accomplished official for volleyball.  She is a starter for both cross country and track meets.  When Pam is hired to do any of these events, you can bet that she is as prepared as any official can be.  Because of age and physical condition, many of her male counterparts cannot keep up with the pace of today’s basketball games.  Pam is able to do this because she is still very active as a physical education teacher and participant in adult sports.

I hope Pam is given the opportunity to do boys games before she gets discouraged and does not keep up her license to officiate men’s contests.  Pam is also an accomplished collegiate official.  Keep it up, Pam!
