Girls basketball team forfeits pleyoff game, refused, to play against biological male


The Mid Vermont Christian School girls basketball team withdrew from the Vermont Division IV state tournament because of a refusal to play against an opponent with a transgender student-athlete.

The school’s head of school, Vicky Fogg, stated that playing against a biological male jeopardizes the fairness of the game and the safety of their players.

Vermont law allows transgender female students to play on girls’ sports teams, and the Vermont Principals’ Association supports best practices through their inclusivity statement. The school had earlier submitted a letter asserting that it reserved the right not to follow all of Vermont’s anti-discrimination laws.

It appears the Vermont Principals’ Association is not looking out for the best interest of their biological female students, putting the needs of a biological male ahead of the actual females. It takes a lot for a school to get into the playoffs, but it takes a lot more to forfeit the game and take a stand in protection of real women and the integrity of their sports, because biological males should not be infiltrating women’s sports.

VNews reported more details on the forfeit:

The No. 12 seed Eagles were scheduled to play a first-round game at No. 5 seed Long Trail on Tuesday night, but their withdrawal forfeited the game to the Mountain Lions.

“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 wrote in an email to the Valley News on Wednesday evening. “Allowing biological males to participate in women’s sports sets a bad precedent for the future of women’s sports in general.”

Fogg was not available for a comment according to Vnews, but no comment was needed. The female players and team took a stand for what’s right and that’s the most important part of the story.
