A public school district in Western New York has severed ties with a doctor whose medical assessment was that a 12-year-old girl should not compete on a boys' junior varsity wrestling team. 

The Lancaster Central Schools Board of Education voted unanimously over the weekend to terminate the school district's contract with medical director Dr. Michael Terranova, according to WKBW, Buffalo’s ABC News affiliate. 

The decision came after Terranova denied the request of seventh grader Trista Blasz to wrestle on the junior varsity boys’ wrestling team at Lancaster Middle School.
