VIDEO: Female HS Volleyball Player has Head Trauma After Transgender Player Spiked Ball on Her Head

“She is still recovering from long-term concussion symptoms, including problems with her vision.”

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.

From National Review, via Yahoo News:

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.

Wow the player that was hit was halfway back from the net. The player spiking was targeting her to intimidate her. Not really that uncommon in h.s. volleyball. Slam the good player with a ball to try and reduce their effectiveness because they will back down trying not to get hurt. I read in another publication that the speed on that spike was 70mph. Avg spike speed in h.s. girl volleyball is 30 to 50mph.

    There’s no way the other player aimed that straight at her head…it’s simply not realistic.

    Don’t distract from the issue at hand, which is the safety of a woman playing with a man on the other side of the net regardless of intent.

      It was his 18th Slam of that game. Yes he aimed it for her. He likely didnt intend to hit that hard but yes he aimed it.

      Oh, no, no, no, my friend. Played volleyball for decades, in three states. This sort of “strategy” is very deliberate, like the trash-talking in football and intentional fouling in basketball. You may argue whether a particular HS player does or doesn’t have the skill to pull it off, but players who do, often will.

        I misread the original post to say that he was aiming straight for her head. I don’t think that skill is present with a closed fist in most people, especially not HS players. At her body and general direction to force a mistake, yeah that makes more sense.

        The point is I don’t think there was intent to injure, just win the point. The greater point is that regardless of intent, a significant danger risk is increased on women players playing with biological men in this and many other sports.

          I don’t believe I’ve seen a closed fist spike since way back in my rec league days. No real directional control, especially near the lines. Like kicking a soccer ball with your toe.

Yep, keep kowtowing to the lunatics that support this madness. Keep genuflecting before this idiotic cult right up to when your daughter gets spiked in the head, when you daughter is ogled in the locker room. Keep telling yourself it’s the “progressive” thing to do.

“Transgender player…”

Yeah, it was actually a man. “Transgender” is a made up term for something that does not actually exist in real life. A man does not become a woman by merely saying that it is so. But if you want to play along with his sexual fantasy be my guest.

suggestion:
players from Hiwassee Dam High School male volleyball team take the transgender on that other, unmentioned team out on a “date”

“Fallon Fox” a man pretending to be a woman, broke Tamikka Brents orbital ridge in an MMA match in 2014. And that’s adults.

It was only a matter of time before something like this happened. What’s inconceivable to me is that it had to happen at all.

We’re seeing feminists and other useful idiots slowly realize that women were never of any value to the left as anything but a pawn in the Bezmenov demoralization. And now that the left has a better pawn, women are being treated worse by them than the most cartoonish caricature of “the right”.

All schools should forfeit to Highlands in all sports. If everybody refuses to play them then maybe Highlands will get this mentality ill guy off the female volley ball team. By forfeiting no college recruiters could see Highlands play and there would be little chance of anybody from Highlands getting a sports scholarship.

    I agree up to a point. No way should any girls’ team play a team with a biological male on it. Mass forfeiting is the right way to respond. Deciding that the kid who did the spike is “mentally ill” strikes me as a bit extreme.

      healthguyfsu in reply to Hollymon. | October 25, 2022 at 12:39 pm

      I guess mentally ill includes narcissism, so maybe it does track.

      rwingjr in reply to Hollymon. | October 26, 2022 at 1:37 am

      I’m sorry, but I believe the term “mentally ill” is very appropriate. I have always supported gay rights as I feel they have certain feelings and eventually learn to accept themselves for how they feel and what they are. A person born as one sex who wants to be another and thinks they can change what they are with surgery and hormones, rather than accept what they are, is mentally ill. Unfortunately, those in the medical and psychological community will cater to them. Certain medical conditions are exceptions, but they are very rare. People with those conditions can and should seek treatment.

I wonder if any other team (and related school) now playing the transgender team has clear legal liability if this happens to one of their players – subjecting them to a known danger?

Are men that much more resistant to concussion? I’ve been plenty of male blockers get a spike to the head without incident from hitters much bigger and stronger than this one. In those cases the ball travels no more than a foot or two before hitting them.

    Yes. The effects of Testosterone on developing bones and muscle. Harder and stronger. Traditionally, that is appreciated by women, but these days…

    healthguyfsu in reply to randian. | October 25, 2022 at 12:58 pm

    The ball traveling only a foot actually may be safer than further away on a downward trajectory as was in this case. Momentum and gravity-based acceleration could play in. I’m not going to pretend to know the quantitative physics for sure, though.

    Based on muscle tone in the neck, men may have it better to deflect a ball without sloshing the brain but based on skull thickness, women may actually be slightly thicker. Several studies show that.
