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.

Syria opposition on same tack as U.S. on terrorism, Iran
The Al-Nusra Front terror group, which renamed itself into itself Jabhat Fateh al-Sham, has claimed responsibility for the attack. De Mistura said Russian Federation asked the Syrian government to halt its bombings during the talks.

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.

Sixers send Ilyasova to Hawks for Splitter
Splitter has been plagued by injuries over the past two seasons and has not played this season due to a calf injury. Splitter is averaging 5.6 points per game and 3.3 rebounds per game this season.

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.

A transgender high school student from the Dallas area has made it to the wrestling state finals.

Vardy goal gives Leicester hope in ECL
It won't be an easy task this evening though, as Leicester takes on the winners of the Europa League for three seasons in a row. Sevilla went agonisingly close to doubling their lead in the 50th minute as Vitolo rattled the upright from a tight angle.

"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.
