University President Takes Stand Against Transgender Athlete

A university president issued a statement about transgender players in sports.

Dr. Wayne D. Lewis Jr., the president of Houghton University, issued a statement on Monday about transgender athletes in athletics.

"I reached the place where I could no longer remain silent on this issue," Lewis told the crowd. "When I see young women with Houghton written across their uniform…

My hope is that we can come together on this issue and get back to what is best for women's athletics," he said.
