Emily Nash, a junior a Lununburg High School in MA beat her fellow competitors who were boys by four shots, but Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association rules prohibit her from claiming the CMass D3 title.
Emily said she is taking it all in stride.
Nash fired what should have been the winning round on Tuesday, but Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association rules stipulate that girls can play in boys tournaments, but cannot compete in the boys individual tournaments.
Because of her success this fall, Emily has qualified for the Girl State Championship in the spring when she'll join her female teammates.
Nash and her father, Robert, said they understand the rules but they're not sure why this one exists.
So Nash's score on Tuesday only counted toward her team's total.
'He felt so bad about it that he actually tried to give the trophy to Emily, ' Kocur said.
Emily Nash won the Division 3 boy's golf tournament with a 3-over-par 75 at Blissful Meadows Golf Club in Uxbridge, a tournament that is held annually in the region.
The MIAA and its member schools congratulate all golfers on their performance at the recent fall sectional team golf tournament. She's the No. 1 player on the Lunenburg boys' team since she arrived in eighth grade. She just wasn't allowed to win. They can, however, compete as a part of the team side of the tournament.
The boys team and individual tournament has taken place in the fall and the girls team and individual tournament has taken place in the spring. Approximately 26 female golfers participated in 2017 fall boys golf tournaments. Given this team opportunity during the fall tournament season, it has been clear to participants that female golfers playing in the fall boys team tournament are not participating in an individual capacity.
