A girls' track athlete from Glastonbury (Conn.) High School has filed a complaint with the U.S. Department of Education's Office for Civil Rights, claiming inclusion of transgender athletes in a qualifying race kept her from completing in the New England regionals.

Selina Soule, 16, claims two biological boys who identify as female ran in the same 55-meter event as she did, denying her the sixth-place finish needed to advance to the regionals, where she says college coaches could have seen her compete.

Appearing on Tucker Carlson's Fox News program last week, Soule said, "No one in the state of Connecticut is happy about this, but no one has enough courage to speak up."
