‘Training Rules’ Documentary Premieres

rene-portlandIn 2006, Lady Lion basketball coach Rene Portland garnered outrage when she was accused of removing guard Jennifer Harris from the team because of the player’s perceived sexual orientation. Portland had spoken out against recruiting gay athletes publicly in the past, and allegedly had harassed Harris because of her race and perceived gender preference.

Academy Award-nominated documentary filmmaker Dee Mosbacher’s film about the events that led to the revocation of Harris’ scholarship premiered this past Saturday at the Philadelphia Film Festival.

Interestingly enough, there is no scheduled screening on the Penn State campus.

Screenings at the Atlanta Film Festival, St. Cloud GLBTA Film Festival, and the Miami & Fort Lauderdale Gay & Lesbian Film Festival are scheduled for the month of April.

Gorman Abruptly Resigns

Head coach of the men’s soccer program Barry Gorman unexpectedly announced his resignation Monday. He leaves a legacy of 22 years of coaching and three Big Ten titles in his wake. Citing “personal reasons,” he has left the team to a nation-wide search for his successor.

“We expected Gorman to be there,” [rising Senior and Co-Captain Andres] Casais said of next season. “He was a father figure to us.”



Oof, that can’t feel good. The move isn’t completely out of the blue, as Gorman was periodically absent during the past few weeks without notice. But from all accounts, his intention to resign was only revealed yesterday. On the abandonment scale, this registers just slightly above “going to the store for some cigarettes and never coming back.”
