Canton Central School has filed a formal protest against Potsdam Central claiming that having multiple boys on the girls swim team is having an adverse effect upon the female swimmers. Having boys on the swim team has raised concerns in the community about unfair competition. PCS is in preliminary discussions with other schools to form an athletic merger so that boys who are interested will have a boys' swim team to participate on.

Do you feel like boys should be able to compete with girls in high school sports when no other options are available?
