(AURORA, Colo., Aug. 25, 2004) Regis High School sophomore Samantha Straight (center), 15, practices with the rest of the Regis Poms team Wednesday in what used to be the football team's weight room. At the moment the Poms will only be performing at girls sporting events because the formerly all-male school has a spirit squad called the "Rowdies", which the boys at the school didn't want to lose as a tradition. The Poms may still be integrated into boys sporting events if a compromise can be reached. Regis High School is the first high school in the country to offer all-girls Jesuit education. The school just recently started accepting young women and is set to open the girls division in the old boys' building that has been remodeled. The two campuses are separated by a courtyard and the two sexes aren't allowed to intermingle during the school day. Proponents of single-sex education say that the kids receive a better education without the added distractions that occur in other settings. (Photo by MARC PISCOTTY/ROCKY MOUNTAIN NEWS)
