All high school girls’ volleyball teams in the Cherokee County School District North Carolina are forfeiting their remaining games this season against a school that has a transgender player.The decision came after a player on the Hiwassee Dam High School team was injured by a ball spiked by a player on the Highlands School team, according to station WTVC in neighboring Chattanooga, Tenn.

Other sources have identified the spiker as a transgender girl; notes from a Cherokee County Board of Education meeting from September 21 call her a “biological male.”There was much public comment at the meeting.

One speaker, Steve Colemen, claimed that the presence of a “biological male” posed risks to girls and that he feared “biological males” would over girls’ sports.
