Student challenges sport rules because no male competitions

A Wisconsin boy looking to compete on his school's girls' gymnastic team is now taking legal action to gain access.

Keith Michael Bukowski, a junior at Stevens Point Area Senior High, and his mother, Janine Olszewski, filed a summons and complaint against the Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association for rejecting his membership on the team.

The teen's school does not have a boys' gymnastic team, and he feels officials have no right to exclude him from the girls' team especially since girls, he says, have been allowed to compete on male teams, like football and wrestling in recent years.
