The Vermont Christian school that forfeited a game in the girls state basketball playoffs because its opponent had a biological male student has been banned from participating in sporting events going forward.
The Gateway Pundit reported last month Mid Vermont Christian School (MVCS) withdrew from Vermont’s division IV basketball tournament due to a biological male being on the opposing team.
MVCS head of school Vicky Fogg explained in a statement it was unfair and unsafe for the high school girls to play against a biological male.
We withdrew from the tournament because we believe playing against an opponent with a biological male jeopardizes the fairness of the game and the safety of our players. Allowing biological males to participate in women’s sports sets a bad precedent for the future of women’s sports in general.
As reported by the Valley News, The Vermont Principals’ Association (VPA), the governing body for high school sports in the state, released a statement Monday saying Mid Vermont Christian School (MVCS) violated policies and is thus ineligible to participate in future events sanctioned by them.
The ban covers all sports and will take effect immediately.
