This is a reminder that males and females have different levels of strength. That’s part of the reason we have typically separated sports by gender.

Female High-School Volleyball Athlete Suffers Serious Head Injury after Transgender Player Spikes ‘Abnormally Fast’ Ball
A North Carolina high-school volleyball athlete has suffered a severe injury after a transgender player spiked a ball at her head at and “abnormally fast” speed, newly released video footage shows.
The male opponent hit the volleyball at approximately 70 mph, according to the Daily Mail. One bystander claimed that it was “abnormally” fast, the publication said. The female teammate at Hiwassee Dam High School experienced trauma to the head and neck, reportedly.
She is still recovering from long-term concussion symptoms, including problems with her vision. She has not yet been approved to compete again.
Hiwassee Dam will forfeit all games against the transgender player’s school, a decision made by the Cherokee County school board in a five to one vote.
The board mentioned concerns about safety without addressing the transgender component, the fact that a biological male with a significant physical advantage overpowered a female player.
“The County will not participate in any volleyball games, varsity or junior varsity, against Highlands due to safety concerns,” the minutes from the board’s meeting read.
Hiwassee Dam’s athletic director attended the school-board meeting and declared that “statement needs to be made that it [was] unfair and unsafe” for his team to go up against Highlands school.
