Franklin Pierce University was near boundless with praise for its Women’s Track and Field champion, reporting this on its website:
Senior CeCe Telfer (Lebanon, N.H.) won three Northeast-10 Conference titles to lead the Franklin Pierce University women’s track & field team and earn Most Outstanding Track Athlete honors at the NE10 Championships, hosted by American International College, on the campus of Smith College…
The Ravens posted a 49.5-point day on Sunday, and Telfer took care of 31.5 of those herself. She claimed 10 points apiece for the crimson and grey by winning the NE10 titles in the 60-meter dash, the 200-meter dash and the 60-meter hurdles.
Telfer met the NCAA Championships provisional qualifying standard in all three events, with a time of 7.63 seconds in the 60-meter dash, 24.45 seconds in the 200-meter dash, and 8.49 seconds in the 60-meter hurdles. The hurdles time broke her own NE10 Championships record, which had been set in Saturday’s preliminary heats.
Telfer added another 1.5 points in the high jump, where she cleared 1.56 meters to finish in a tie for seventh. She became the first student-athlete in the history of Franklin Pierce track & field, men’s or women’s, to earn Most Outstanding Athlete honors at an NE10 Championship.
While Pierce’s athletic department is glowing with praise, what they have omitted from their report is why CeCe is beating women.
Last year, “CeCe” was “Craig”, and competed in men’s division, where he wasn’t such a star.
What a difference a year makes for this biological male, who now identifies as a female and runs faster than most of the girls, most of the time.
Not everyone is happy with CeCe’s “victories.” While CeCe is not a very attractive “female” – gaunt, too tall by far – NCAA rules allow a biological male to compete as a woman if he suppresses his testosterone levels for only one year.
Telfer was competing as a male just last year, so it is unclear if the athlete was asked to prove compliance with the one-year requirement.
But why worry about details. He’s fast. She’s fast. He wins races. She wins races. What else really matters?
“She is ranked third in the country in the hurdles and seventh in the 200-meter dash,” the university boasted.
Actually, his/her 24.45 seconds in the 200-meter dash might sound impressive, but doesn’t compare to the men’s NCAA record of 19.69, and not even close to the women’s mark of 22.02. (That 2.3 second difference is about average between men and women in track, because of their different physical structures.)
Showing no shame at her sin of omission, Rachel Burleson, the schools Athletic director, tweeted out a photo of the athlete and congratulated Telfer on receiving the honor.
Congratulations to all our athletes for a successful day @TheNortheast10 championships! Special shoutout to CeCe Telfer for being named the Women’s Most Outstanding Track Performer! — Rachel Burleson (@FPURavensAD)
