Transgender student to play on Azusa High School softball team

The Azusa High School girls softball team will include the state’s first transgender student-athlete, district officials said Thursday. A senior, Pat Cordova-Goff, 17, is a member of the school’s cheer squad and played on the school’s baseball team as a freshman. “We feel really confident about her ability,” Azusa Unified Superintendent Linda Kaminski said. “No.  1 as a district, we want to ensure access to everyone, but we’re also committed to placing students on the team on their merits  ... Based on her skills, Pat did make the team.”
