Parents have launched two rule change petitions after two transgender high school students swept the Connecticut girls’ state track and field competitions.

As local station WTNH News 8 reports, sophomores Terry Miller and Andraya Yearwood – both of whom were born males, but now identify as females – outcompeted genetic female athletes, which some female athletes and their parents say is unfair:

“Miller, a sophomore at Bulkeley High School, took first place in the 100 and 200 meter dash. Yearwood, a sophomore at Cromwell High School, took second in the 100 meter dash.”

Montville Senior Lauren Ross. "It just seems kind of unfair to the other people competing," Montville senior Lauren Ross told WTNH.
