NC School To Forfeit Games Against Rival After Trans Athlete Hurts Player

The Cherokee County Board of Education in North Carolina has voted to forfeit future games against a rival school after a transgender athlete injured one of their players during a volleyball game last month.

According to reports, the board for Hiwassee Dam High School voted to forfeit all girls volleyball matches against Highlands School by a near-unanimous vote. During a game last month, a Hiwassee Dam player suffered head and neck injuries after being hit with a spike from a Highlands transgender athlete.

“The county will not participate in any volleyball games, varsity or junior varsity, against Highlands due to safety concerns,” the school board said, via FOX News.

The injured Hiwassee Dam player is reportedly still suffering from long-term concussion symptoms and has yet to be cleared.

Hiwassee Dam athletic director David Payne and Vice Chair Jeff Martin said “there is a competitive advantage and a safety concern for certain teams — it’s not the same for all teams.” Payne added, “a statement needed to be made and that it’s unfair and unsafe.”
