Victor denied trophy - because she's a GIRL

A teenage golfer from MA who came first in a regional tournament this week was denied a trophy and a chance to compete at state level because she's a girl, according to local media reports. But this wouldn't be newsworthy if there wasn't a twist: the closest male competitor, whom Nash outplayed by four strokes, took home the tournament trophy.

Nash countered Riordan's account by telling WCVB she "wasn't aware that if I won I wouldn't get the title or the trophy".

It has been confirmed that Nash played from the boys' tees, confusing this even more.

"It's a real injustice that she wasn't announced as the victor", Robert Dufresne, a volunteer rules official with the Massachusetts Golf Association, told the publication.

The MIAA's policy states that while girls can play on the fall boys golf teams, they cannot be entered in the individual tournament in the fall. And for those wondering if she can compete for states in the female golf tournament, she can't do that either because her school doesn't support a girl's golf team.

Support for marijuana legalization reaches record high: Gallup poll
By 2001, however, about a third of Americans favored legalizing marijuana, and support has steadily increased since. This is the highest approval rating marijuana legalization has ever reached in a Gallup poll.

Emily's score on Tuesday only counted toward the team's total, which was not enough to qualify for the state tournament.

"So I was definitely disappointed, but I understand that there are rules in place", she told the Telegram.

That meant that the boy who finished second, Nico Ciolino, would be awarded the trophy. In the case of golf, these tournaments exist in two different seasons.

Regardless of the political correctness that often clouds the issue, mixing boys and girls in competition is not always easy to accommodate. They have the right to regulate things, but once they let her tee up and take that shot, it should have been allowed.

The MIAA and its member schools congratulate all golfers on their performance at the recent fall sectional team golf tournament. Approximately 26 female golfers participated in 2017 fall boys golf tournaments. But if she can play with and beat the boys as well, why shouldn't her individual accomplishment there be recognized? Given this team opportunity during the fall tournament season, it has been clear to participants that female golfers playing in the fall boys team tournament are not participating in an individual capacity.
