Last week, a high school female field hockey player suffered “significant facial and dental injuries” after she was hit in the face with a shot from a transgender girl on the opposing team. And now, one school official is speaking out about the aftermath of the incident.
During a recent interview on “OutKick The Morning” with Charly Arnolt, Dighton-Rehoboth superintendent of schools Bill Runey described the outrage that followed the incident and how he has tried to support the team after the incident.
“It’s very hot. The tension is very high,” Runey said. “At first, it was a sense of trauma. I went to meet the bus when the girls returned from Swampscott because I wanted to let them know that they had the support of the district.
“That we were gonna have resources available to them the next school day with our counseling staff. And the trauma that I saw in their eyes, the sadness I saw in their eyes and in the eyes of the coaches is something that I will never, ever forget.
“And now, it has turned to an outrage because of the fact that it doesn’t seem as if anybody is willing to listen to change.”
It’s clear that those at Dighton-Rehoboth are not happy about the incident.
