- A girls high school basketball team in Vermont withdrew from the state’s playoff tournament last Tuesday because it refused to play against a team that had a biological male on its roster.
- Valley News reported that the No. 12 seed Mid Vermont Christian School girls basketball team forfeited their game against No. 5 seed Long Trail because the team did not believe it was fair to play against a transgender athlete.
- “We believe playing against an opponent with a biological male jeopardizes the fairness of the game and the safety of our players,” MVCS head of school Vicky Fogg said in a statement. “Allowing biological males to participate in women’s sports sets a bad precedent for the future of women’s sports in general.”
