At Kearsarge Regional High School in New Hampshire, sophomore high jumper Maelle Jacques has won the New Hampshire Interscholastic Athletic Association Division 2 state championship.

Jacques is transgender, in other words, a biological male who competes as a girl.

Trans Jumper Obliterates Girls’ Record

Not surprisingly, being a male, Jacques did not just win the high jump competition for girls – he completely destroyed the girls’ record by jumping at 5’1.”

That’s one inch higher than any girl.

If this was a boys jumping competition – where he belongs biologically considering the significant physical and ability differences between most males and females of any age – his performance would have been poor.

The lowest boys’ jump was 5’8″, and the highest was 6’2.”

If all of this seems unfair to girl athletes, you’re not alone.

The New Hampshire Journal reports:

Jacques’ participation on the girls team, as well as Jacques’ string of wins over the last two indoor track seasons, have garnered national attention. Outspoken supporter of women’s athletics and 12-time All-American swimmer Riley Gaines blamed Kearsarge parents for allowing their child to take wins away from female athletes.

“How could the parents of this boy allow their son to cheat deserving women out of opportunities? And why don’t the parents of the girls stand up and say ‘no’ for their daughters?” Gaines posted on social media. “This country is full of failing, gutless mothers and fathers.”

Meanwhile, Democrats in the New Hampshire legislature continue to oppose legislation that would protect girls sports from male athletes.

School District Stands By Policy

Jacques school district has defended his decision to play as a girl.

“Kearsarge supports all students and student-athletes regardless of their gender identity,” said district superintendent Winfried Feneberg.

She added, “Each student-athlete has the right to compete in the activity of their choice. The New Hampshire Interscholastic Athletic Association’s stance on this issue is clear: Denying that opportunity is a violation of equal rights afforded under state and federal law.”

“Further, we believe that limiting access to any activity violates our core mission and vision, which are grounded in supporting every student and student-athlete’s right to pursue their goals and interests,” Feneberg said.
