The best girl’s high jumper in New Hampshire is a boy.
Maelle Jacques, a student at Kearsarge Regional high School, is a boy but competes as a girl. He was the state championship in the high jump. And he smashed the all-time girl’s record by jumping an inch higher than the gals.
As Breitbart News reported, had Jacques competed as a boy, he would gone down in defeat. The highest boy’s jump was 6’2″.

The school district defended its decision to allow Jacques to compete as a girl.
“Kearsarge supports all students and student-athletes regardless of their gender identity,” district superintendent Winfried Feneberg told Breitbart News.
“Each student-athlete has the right to compete in the activity of their choice,” she said. “The New Hampshire Interscholastic Athletic Association’s stance on this issue is clear: Denying that opportunity is a violation of equal rights afforded under state and federal law.
“Further, we believe that limiting access to any activity violates our core mission and vision, which are grounded in supporting every student and student-athlete’s right to pursue their goals and interests,” Feinberg added.
Riley Gaines, the former NCAA swimmer who is now a women’s sports advocate, was livid.
“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?” Gaines wrote on X. “This country is full of failing, gutless mothers and fathers.”
