Why can't girls and boys compete against each other?

They can and in some cases they do. Many sports separate men's and women's events, because testosterone(which men have a lot more of than women) is an anabolic steroid:it produces extra muscle mass and strength and extra bone densityand strength. So, all else being equal, men tend to be strongerthan women (a woman who lifts weights can certainly be strongerthan a man who doesn't, but if both of them work out to the samedegree or neither of them work out at all, the man will probably bestronger). Men also tend to be taller than women, and thatcan be important in some sports (basketball being a good example). Before puberty, there's little difference in testosteroneproduction, so combined sports at the elementary school level(kickball at recess, say) are more common; there's less inherent"unfairness" involved. In contrast, by junior high (when sexhormone production has started) there are very few combined sports.
