Transgender athlete Mack Beggs wins Texas state girls wrestling title

Posted February 27, 2017

He won his match in the first round of the tournament Friday. Founded in 1846, AP has covered all the major news events of the past 165 years, providing high-quality, informed reporting of everything from wars and elections to championship games and royal weddings.

Attorney Jim Baudhuin is the father of a girl wrestler in a different weight class as Mack Beggs, the 17-year-old girl transitioning to become a boy.

The UIL has a policy that allows banned substances for medical reasons.

Racing 92 have confirmed second row Ali Williams has been suspended after being arrested on suspicion of possessing cocaine. British and French media said Williams - a Rugby World Cup victor - was arrested with former Wallabies star James O'Connor.

After his win Beggs family and teammates cheered as did a majority of the spectators at the Berry Center in Cypress just northwest of Houston. "She's being forced into that position".

His story attracted attention last weekend when two female wrestlers forfeited in the regional finals, protesting that Beggs has a competitive advantage by receiving testosterone treatments as part of his transition to female to male. "But every indication is, the way the winds are going now, the blame rests with the UIL and the superintendents".

Texas' policy and Trump's rollback of trans protections, Taylor said, does trans students like Beggs a huge disservice in shutting them out from the joys of athletics.

The UIL defended its rules-making process as "transparent" and a reflection of the public across more than 1,400 member schools.

Baudhuin said he would not seek a last-minute injunction to keep Beggs from competing at state, but did say he plans to pursue his lawsuit after the season is over. But state superintendents previous year approved - by a resounding 95 percent - a policy that requires an athlete to compete with the gender on his or her birth certificate. Both wrestlers were in the top 4 in the tournament which means they already qualified for the state championship tournament. To me, this is a complete abject failure of leadership and accountability from the people who regulate sports in Texas.

Grinstead, a former beauty pageant contestant, was last seen October 22, 2005 at her home in home in Ocilla, Georgia. The case has stumped authorities for more than a decade. "Tara was a singer; that was her talent in pageants".

"It's not fair for Mack because Mack is not getting true competition and true experience for what it is to wrestle his level". Jamey Harrison with UIL says it started receiving calls from school districts asking about gender determination.
