“In the spring of 2022, the girl’s team tacked ‘non-binary’ onto its name and has been winning game after game ever since.”
What a shock. This is so unfair to girls. Why is it being allowed to happen?

Surprise! Girl’s Frisbee Team Dominates State Tournament After Adding Males to the Roster
Middleton High School’s “Girl’s/Non-Binary Varsity Ultimate Frisbee Team” defeated its competition for a second year in a row at the state championship tournament, two years after allowing biological males who identify as female or “non-binary” to join the team.
In the spring of 2022, the girl’s team tacked “non-binary” onto its name and has been winning game after game ever since.
The team’s first-place win at the state tournament was by a wide 12-5 margin, according to an announcement on the school’s website.
“[Ultimate frisbee] always encouraged me to be the best person in terms of like who I am and what my body can do,” a “non-binary” student told the public high school’s student paper last year.
While the girl’s team has been fundamentally changed, its male counterpart is still just a “boy’s team.”
Middleton High School is the only girl’s team in the Wisconsin Ultimate Madison Area League that has changed its name to include “non-binary” or “transgender” people, according to a review of each team’s website and social media profiles.
The New Guard reached out to the local league and its national governing body to question the fairness of allowing boys to compete in girl’s sports. USA Ultimate directed the New Guard to a statement on its website that says, “All participants should be allowed to experience the joy of ultimate as their authentic and true selves.”
In April, USA Ultimate adopted a policy prohibiting national championship tournaments from taking place in states that have legislation in place to protect women’s and girl’s sports.
