Culture gone mad. This ‘girl’ signals the death of fair competition in girls/women sports. All the effort of title 9 to give women the opportunity to compete in sports will be harmed by allowing men to compete against the women the law was intended to help. Sad.
“Last year, Kate Hall wasn’t positive she fully appreciated winning a Class M state championship as a sophomore.
That gave Hall, a Stonington High School junior, even higher expectations for Tuesday’s Class M state track and field championship at Willow Brook Park, where she was focused on a repeat in the 100 meters and was also one of the top seeds in the 200, in which she finished in the top 10 in New England last year.
Instead, the day belonged to Cromwell’s Andraya Yearwood, a freshman who won both the 100 and the 200.
Yearwood is a transgender athlete who competed for Cromwell as a girl for the first time on April 5, winning both sprints in a tri-meet against Portland and Old Saybrook.
