Selina missed qualifying for the 55-meter in the New England regionals by two spots. Two spots, she said, that were taken by biological boys.
This year, trans students, Terry Miller and Andraya Yearwood, took 1st and 2nd place in the 2019 Connecticut State Championships in Girls Track. When Miller and Yearwood took 1st and 2nd in 2018, parents and students started talking about the unfair advantages they have, and other significant issues, like girls losing scholarships. The media painted the girls as bigots and sore losers.
In 2018, Terry Miller, of Bulkeley High School, won 1st place in the 100-meter dash, at 11.72 seconds, and in the 200-meter dash, at 24.17 seconds, in the Connecticut State Championships Girls Track. These were record breaking times. In 2019, Miller won 1st place, again, at the Connecticut State Championships, and set a record in Girls Indoor Track, of 6.95 seconds, in the 55 meter dash.
In 2017, Andraya Yearwood, of Cromwell High School, took 1st place in the Girls 100 meter dash, and in the 200 meter dash, at the Connecticut State Championships Girls Track meet. In 2018, Yearwood came in 2nd place in the 100 meter dash, and, in 2019, Yearwood came in second 2nd place in the 55 meter dash, recorded at 7.01 seconds.
Selina Soule, missed out on qualifying for the New England regionals by 2 places.
“We all know the outcome of the race before it even starts; it’s demoralizing,” she said, adding she believed “Trans” Miller & Yearwood have a right to express themselves in school, “but athletics?

In her YouTube video, Selina Soule says, “The media has been even worse, attacking us and portraying girls as sore losers. And that we should try harder. We do train very hard, but when a mediocre boy athlete can outperform the best girl out there, any day, because of their physical superiority, we are just losers, not sore losers.”
Selina goes on to say, “I will not be quiet about this. HR5, The Equality Act [in the US], will impose a nationwide transgender athletics policy on America. It will endanger women and girls of all ages by opening up every sports team in the country to any male who self-identifies as female.”
“This policy will take away our medals, records, scholarships and dreams… Protect us. Don’t take away our dreams.”
In the video you can hear that Soule is distressed. She says, “This policy will take away our medals, records, scholarships and dreams. I can’t allow this… I’m standing up to tell Congress. Protect us. Don’t take away our dreams. Don’t pass HR5.”
“This discussion has been going on among women (who are paying attention to law changes), for a while now. Laws are overwhelmingly created and maintained by rooms of men. Rooms of men determine what we can and can’t do with our bodies…”https://t.co/Tw6aDX6Amz
