Riley Gaines is not happy that a male transgender athlete has helped a Vermont High School girls’ basketball team go 17-1 so far this season.

The former University of Kentucky women’s swimmer turned anti-transgender-sports activist reacted to a NewBostonPost story on social media this week.

The post from Gaines had more than 2,100 likes as of 6 a.m. Tuesday, February 20.
