Last week, we told you that some swimmers on the University of Pennsylvania’s girls’ swim team were anonymously breaking their silence about their trans teammate, Lia Thomas, who has been absolutely destroying school records and dominating in competition. Mentioned in that piece was the University of Akron Zippy Invitational, which was a blowout by Thomas. Here’s video from that meet:

The Daily Mail has a story about a letter sent by the parents of about 10 swimmers to the NCAA and forwarded to the Ivy League and University of Pennsylvania officials. The university sent a short reply to the parents, telling them that Penn Athletics “is committed to being a welcoming and inclusive environment for all our student-athletes, coaches and staff” and said it encouraged student-athletes to utilize the “robust resources” available to them at Penn, including Counseling and Psychological Services and the LGBT Center.

As reported before, the school has “strongly advised” the girls against speaking with the media about their situation, which is why a couple brave ones have been doing it anonymously.
