A transgender school athlete filmed knocking down a rival player played five other female sports and was allegedly suspended for saying ‘ooh t*tties’ in a locker room.

The 6ft student at KIPP Academy Lynn in Massachusetts injured three opponents during a girls’ basketball game on February 8.

Collegiate Charter School of Lowell forfeited the match to avoid losing any more players ahead of the playoffs, and KIPP later withdrew after backlash.

The same transgender student did not only compete in girls’ basketball, but in rowing, volleyball, hurdles, shot put, and tae kwon do.

Before video of the match drew national outrage, the student – sporting a stubbled beard – was featured in a league promotion for an All-Star match on November 9.

Her rowing activities made teammates so uncomfortable she was suspended and kicked off the team, according to a report that went all the way to the US Senate.

The student competed for a private rowing club in Massachusetts in 2021-22, before an alleged ‘direct case of harassment’ in her team’s changing rooms.

The March 20 report to the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee by Republican Senator Bill Cassidy used male pronouns for the student.

‘The male athlete was caught staring openly at one of the female athletes while she changed her clothes in the women’s locker room and remarked, “oooh t*tties!”‘ it read.

‘When a female athlete nearby asked if it was the first time he had seen female breasts, the male responded, “uhh yeah” with a laugh. The male athlete was suspended for this incident.’

The report also claimed she ’caused many issues for the female athletes’ on the team and they avoided using the locker room to avoid her.

The US Center for SafeSport intervened after the incident and the transgender athlete never rowed for the male or female team again.

A letter to USRowing from 15 parents of the club’s 40 female competitors in further claimed that the girls were ‘intimidated’ into silence.

‘Our daughters have stayed quiet because they are afraid. We tried to speak up for them, and we were shut down,’ the letter read.

‘We tried to speak to leadership at all levels. [But] name-calling and the threat of mental health is being used as emotional blackmail to keep us all quiet while women are harmed and devalued.’

Parents said one girl on every trip had to ‘take one for the team’ and share a room with their transgender teammate.

‘The rowing team also required the male athlete to room with them on trips. The girls spoke to us about quitting rowing because of the intimidation of being forced to be in a hotel room alone with a male,’ it read.

The chairwoman of the USRowing medical committee is endocrinologist Kathryn Ackerman, a former US national team rower.

She is also medical director of the Female Athlete Program in the Division of Sports Medicine at Boston Children’s Hospital. 

The hospital in August 2022 deleted reference on its website to performing  vaginoplasty – a male to female sex change operation – on 17-year-olds after it came under fire.

Ackerman in 2022 co-authored a paper in the British Journal of Sports Medicine titled Improving inclusion and well-being of trans and gender nonconforming collegiate student-athletes.

She also presented an online lecture in October on The Care of Transgender Athletes that laid out the advantages male athletes have over female ones.

Ackerman wrote that female athletes had ’30 percent lower max cardiac output’ and 25 to 50 percent lower VO2 max, along with less blood and therefore less oxygen capacity.

Females had ‘about 45 percent less lean body mass. So that would suggest that women are 40 to 60 percent weaker in their upper-body strength, and 25 percent weaker in their lower-body strength’.

The transgender student was named a Commonwealth Atlantic Conference All-Star after a season in which she led the KIPP team in most major statistics.  

Collegiate Charter School officials said the team decided to forfeit the basketball game because the other players feared getting injured and not being able to compete in the playoffs that were a few days later.

‘The bench was already depleted going into the game with the 12-player roster having four players unable to play,’ said Collegiate Charter School spokesperson Casey Crane.

‘When the coach saw three more go down in the first half leaving him with five players, he made the call to end the game early. 

‘The upcoming Charter School playoffs were looming, and he needed a healthy and robust bench in four days.’

Collegiate Charter left the game just after 16 minutes of play, with KIPP leading 31-14. However, the final score now, because of the forfeit, will be 10-0.

Shocking video from the game shows the taller, bulkier transgender player ripping the ball from another players arms, forcing her to fall.

Collegiate Charter School of Lowell Athletic Director Kyle Pelczar told The Daily Item the coach knew about KIPP’s transgender player ahead of time and she wasn’t the reason they forfeited. 

‘No, and Coach (Kevin Ortins) knew going into the game, already, because we had them at home the first game of the year and nothing happened then, so he knew going into the game,’ Pelczar said. 

KIPP then withdrew from its next match against Lynn Tech after the transgender student received death threats due to the video.

The Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association said a player cannot be excluded from a team based on gender identity.

Section 43.3.1 on the handbook said, ‘A student shall not be excluded from participation on a gender-specific sports team that is consistent with the student’s bona fide gender identity.’

The handbook noted a student cannot be listed on a team roster for the purpose of gaining an unfair advantage.

‘It is a recommended best practice that schools communicate with their opponents as necessary about the gender-specific needs of their team in order to promote inclusion,’ said the handbook.
