Minnesota State College Teams Will Not Travel to N.C.

May 4, 2016

The Minnesota State College and Universities system announced Tuesday that athletic teams in the system would not be permitted to travel to North Carolina, The Star Tribune reported. The move is part of a system decision to boycott North Carolina due to a law there that prevents public colleges and universities and other state agencies from allowing transgender people to use bathrooms other than those designated for their legal gender at birth. The system's teams include squads that are contenders for two National Collegiate Athletic Association baseball championship tournaments (one in Division II and one in Division III) scheduled to take place in North Carolina.
