High School Golf Tourney Winner Denied Trophy - Even Though She Finished First

High School Golf Tourney Winner Denied Trophy - Even Though She Finished First

She wasn't awarded the first place trophy, because she's a girl. Central Mass. Division 3 boys' golf tournament director Kevin Riordan said he made Nash and her coach aware of the rule before the tournament began.

Nash, a junior at Lunenburg High School in Lunenburg, Mass., had the lowest score in the Central Mass Division 3 Boys' Golf Tournament.

In what has been termed a "classy" move, the boy who was awarded the individual championship trophy offered it to Nash.

"Golf is a sport anybody can play against anybody, so it shouldn't matter whether you're a boy or a girl".

Emily said she is taking it all in stride.

But instead her team did not qualify as a group to compete and she will not be allowed to play as an individual under the rules of the Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association. "Girls playing on a fall boys' team can not be entered in the Boys Fall Individual Tournament", MIAA rules state.

Curry denies throwing mouthpiece at the referee, he said: "I didn't throw my mouthpiece at the ref, ' Curry told ESPN ". Curry has stressed that he did not intend to throw his mouthpiece at the official.

Because of her success this fall, Emily has qualified for the Girl State Championship in the spring when she'll join her female teammates.

Nash wants to play golf, but she attends a school without a girls team.

'He felt so bad about it that he actually tried to give the trophy to Emily, ' Kocur said. Nico was right behind her, with a 79. And for as much as the MIAA likes to fashion golf as a team sport in high school, it is still an individual sport, first and foremost. "But, she didn't want to take it because she was too disappointed".

Regardless of the political correctness that often clouds the issue, mixing boys and girls in competition is not always easy to accommodate. In the case of golf, these tournaments exist in two different seasons. "It has been clear to participants that female golfers playing in the fall boys' team tournament are not participating in an individual capacity", the association said in a statement.

The MIAA and its member schools congratulate all golfers on their performance at the recent fall sectional team golf tournament. Female golfers can only play individually during the girls' season.

She did so while playing from the same tees as the boys, carding a 3-over 75 and beating the next-closest challenger by four strokes.
