U.S. ‘Full of Failing, Gutless Mothers And Fathers’: High School Boy Defeats Girls In High Jump Competition

A boy who is a high school sophomore took first place in the girls’ high jump competition at the New Hampshire Interscholastic Athletic Association (NHIAA) indoor track and field championship.

Maelle Jacques, who celebrated as a female competitor failed to match his winning jump, jumped 5’2”, one inch higher than any girl but roughly a foot lower than the winning jump in the boys’ competition.

Twelve-time All-American swimmer Riley Gaines slammed Jacques’ parents, posting on X, “How could the parents of this boy allow their son to cheat deserving women out of opportunities? And why don’t the parents of the girls stand up and say ‘no’ for their daughters? This country is full of failing, gutless mothers and fathers.”

The NHIAA has an eligibility policy that asserts, “The NHIAA is committed to providing transgender student-athletes with equal opportunities to participate in NHIAA athletic programs consistent with their gender identity. The NHIAA has concluded that it would be fundamentally unjust and contrary to applicable state and federal law to preclude a student from participation on a gender-specific sports team that is consistent with the public gender identity of that student for all other purposes.”

The organization that oversees the track competition reportedly allows athletes to compete in whatever division they want.

Shannon McGinley, executive director of Cornerstone Action, said, “If school boards feared their constituents more than they feared [law firm] Drummond Woodsum and leftist superintendents, in a matter of months, we could have half the school districts in the state organized into an alternative NHIAA. The solution is for parents to stop accepting cowardly excuses from school board members who ran as conservative.”


Meanwhile, New Hampshire Democrats are opposing proposed legislation that would prevent boys from competing against girls. SB 524 states that it would require “any interscholastic, intercollegiate, or club athletic team, sport, or athletic event that is sponsored or sanctioned by a school, school district, an activities association or organization under the control of the state board of education, or an institution of higher education under either the university system or the community college system to be designated based on the biological sex at birth of the participating athletes, and restricts those participating in sports designated as ‘female’ to biological females.”

One Democrat, Rep. Tim Horrigan said of Jacques, “We don’t even know if she’s actually trans, but if she is, that’s certainly a very unfair thing [to keep her from competing]. A lot of these cases, they are pretty obscure competitions that normally sports fans wouldn’t be paying much attention to.”
