Earlier this month, transgender athletes Terry Miller of Bulkeley and Andraya Yearwood of Cromwell came in first and second during a state track meet, completely blowing away their competition with ease. While the two dominated the 100 and 200 meter dashes at Connecticut’s state championships for girls track and field, parents decided to take action and launch a petition to make sure that competitions are restricted to athletes who were the same gender at birth. Bianca Stanescu, whose daughter Selina Soule finished sixth in the 100-meter State Open final, was circulating one petition at track meets. Soule herself said, “I think it’s unfair to the girls who work really hard to do well and qualify for Opens and New Englands. These girls, they’re just coming in and beating everyone. I have no problem with them wanting to be a girl.” – TO
