Tennis champion Billie Jean King, whose 1973 “Battle of the Sexes” victory remains a landmark moment, weighed in on the controversy involving a girl who recorded the best score at a Massachusetts boys’ high school golf tournament but was denied the individual trophy.
Last week, Nash had the best score at the Central Mass. Division 3 boys’ golf tournament, but a Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association rule said she was only eligible to compete in the team competition. Nash is a junior at Lunenburg High.
The MIAA defended the rule, although many criticized the organization for its handling of the situation. MIAA associate director Richard Pearson told the Globe that the MIAA golf committee would put the issue “on their plate for consideration and discussion.”
