Teenage golfer denied trophy because she's a girl

Teenage golfer denied trophy because she's a girl

MIAA rules blocked Nash's score from counting in the individual standings, meaning she wasn't awarded first place, and was denied a championhsip trophy.

A MA high school golfer, who won a tournament by four shots, won't go home with the first-place trophy - because she's a girl.

Unfortunately for high school golfer Emily Nash, her incredible score did not translate into the win she deserved at a recent tournament in her home state of MA. It was four shots better than runner-up Nico Ciolino of the Advanced Math and Science Academy Charter School.

Nash says she was "disappointed" she didn't get the trophy, but according to reports she knew about the rule heading into the tournament.

The British passport holds some clout, but if you thought it was the most powerful in the world then you are sorely mistaken. It appears, when it comes to global travel, not all passports are created equal.

"Golf is a sport anybody can play against anybody, so it shouldn't matter whether you're a boy or a girl". Her all-time best score is a 72. However, MIAA (Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletics Association) rules prohibit a girl who plays on a boys' team from winning the individual event.

It's an odd thing to be allowed to compete for a boys team as a girl but not to be allowed to place in the tournament itself or move on as an individual.

Nash finished fourth in the state girls' tournament last spring as a sophomore. In particular, the skill of the female golfer from Lunenburg was on display as she represented her personal ability and effort on behalf of the Lunenburg High School Boys Golf Team.

"I felt so bad for her", Ciolino said. Alas, that was a bit too much to ask at a recent MA golf tournament.

The MIAA and its member schools congratulate all golfers on their performance at the recent fall sectional team golf tournament.

"You don't always have to win the actual title to get recognition for it", she said. Approximately 26 female golfers participated in 2017 fall boys golf tournaments. They can only play in the boys team tournament. In the case of golf, these tournaments exist in two different seasons. "They can only play in the Boys Team Tournament". Female golfers can only play individually during the girls' season.

Regardless of the political correctness that often clouds the issue, mixing boys and girls in competition is not always easy to accommodate.
