LINCOLN, Neb. — After being christened “one of the best states to be a transgender high school athlete” by Deadspin last year, a Nebraska school activities board has backed away from the very policy that earned it that designation.

Last year, the executive director of the Nebraska School Activities Association, Rhonda Blanford-Green, told multiple national media outlets in December 2012 the NSAA board of directors passed a policy protecting the rights of transgender students. But after Nebraska Watchdog wrote about it, NSAA officials disputed Blanford-Green, saying the policy was discussed but not approved.

In August, rather than vote on the proposed policy, the board decided to punt the issue to its six districts.
