Florida High School Fined More Than $16K For Allowing Transgender Athlete To Play Girls’ Volleyball

via YouTube

Florida officials sanctioned a Broward County high school for allowing a transgender female student, born biologically male, to play on the girls’ volleyball team.

This is the first time a school has been penalized under the “Fairness in Women’s Sports Act,” which bans transgender women and girls from competing in women’s and girls’ sports.

The Florida High School Athletic Association declared the student ineligible to play sports until November 2024, placed the school on athletic probation, and imposed a fine of $16,500. (Trending: Hunter Biden’s Own Memoir Is Coming Back To Haunt Him In Criminal Trial)

Education Commissioner Manny Diaz Jr. wrote in a statement, “Thanks to (DeSantis), Florida passed legislation to protect girls’ sports and we will not tolerate any school that violates this law.”

“We applaud the swift action taken by the FHSAA to ensure there are serious consequences for this illegal behavior,” continued the executive.

The school can appeal the decision, and the investigation into the matter is ongoing.

Broward County Public Schools said in a statement that its “investigation into the matter remains ongoing at this time.”

The sanctions have sparked protests and opposition from groups advocating for inclusivity, while supporters of the law see it as protecting the integrity of girls’ athletics.
