Female Volleyball Player Suffered Paralysis, Memory Loss-Spiked By Trans Athlete

A North Carolina high school volleyball player is speaking out about receiving severe and long-term injuries after getting spiked in the face by a trans athlete last fall. Peyton McNabb, a Hiwassee Dam High School senior, says she suffered a concussion, neck injuries, and memory problems since being struck in the face by a biological male who was allowed to compete against her team. McNabb discussed struggling with her injuries and called on state legislators to pass the Fairness in Women’s Sports Act to prevent the same thing from happening to other girls.

“Due to the North Carolina High School Athletic Association policy of allowing biological males to compete against biological females my life has forever been changed.”

McNabb spoke to reporters this week at the North Carolina legislative building and urged lawmakers to support a ban on trans athletes playing in women’s sports. Standing by her at the press conference was former All-American University of Kentucky swimmer Riley Gaines, who was also there to support the legislation.

McNabb told reporters about the injuries she received last fall while playing against a trans athlete–an encounter that left her unconscious.

“On September 1, 2022, I was severely injured in a high school volleyball game by a transgender athlete on the opposing team. I suffered from a concussion and a neck injury that to this day I am still recovering from. Other injuries I still suffer from today include impaired vision, partial paralysis on my right side, constant headaches, as well as anxiety and depression.”

The high school athlete added that she was unable to compete in the final season, and while she continues to play on the school’s volleyball team, she is unable to perform as well as she used to.

“My ability to learn, retain, comprehend has also been impaired, and I require accommodations at school for testing because of this.”

However, McNabb added that while her injuries have ended her athletic career, she believes her purpose now is to speak out on behalf of other female athletes facing unfair and even dangerous competitions against transgender athletes.

“I’m here for every biological female athlete behind me. My little sister, my cousins, my teammates. Allowing biological males to compete against biological females is dangerous. I may be the first to come before you with an injury, but if this doesn’t pass I won’t be the last.”

On Wednesday, North Carolina lawmakers passed the Fairness in Women’s Sports Act, officially banning biological males from competing in girls’ sports from middle school through the collegiate level. According to Fox News Digital, North Carolina joins at least 20 other states that have imposed restrictions on transgender athletes competing in women’s sports.

“My ability to compete was taken from me. Having to play against biological males is not a level playing field and it is most definitely not safe,” McNabb said.

On Thursday, the U.S. House passed a bill banning federally-funded universities from allowing biological males to compete on women’s sports teams.
