Transgender New Hampshire High School Track Runner Wins Two Events At Meet This Week

April 19, 2024

A male athlete won two events at a girls’ high school track meet in New Hampshire this week.

Kearsarge Regional sophomore Maelle Jacques won the 1600-meter (5:42.69) and the high jump (5 feet) at a five-team meet on Tuesday, April 16, according to The Concord Monitor.

Jacques, a male who identifies as transgender and competes in girls’ track, won the girls’ high jump at the New Hampshire Interscholastic Athletic Association Division 2 state championship this past winter, as NewBostonPost previously reported.

With a jump of 5 feet 1 3/4 inches, Jacques beat out the other contenders at the meet held at Plymouth State University in Plymouth, New Hampshire, on February 11, 2024, according to the state’s Track & Field Results Reporting System.

Jacques also finished second in the 1600-meter at the NHIAA Division 3 outdoor track and field state championship in May 2023, as NewBostonPost previously reported.
