Connecticut high school athletes from left, Alanna Smith, Danbury High School sophomore; Chelsea Mitchell, Canton High School senior; and Selina Soule, Glastonbury High School senior, stand for a portrait after the conclusion of a press conference at the state Capitol Wednesday, Feb. 12, in Hartford. The families of high school athletes Selina Soule, Alanna Smith and Chelsea Mitchell have filed a federal lawsuit against the Connecticut Association of Schools and multiple school districts alleging discrimination. The athletes say they lost out on top finishes and possible scholarship opportunities because a statewide policy allows transgender athletes to compete against cisgender girls.(Kassi Jackson/Hartford Courant)
