Transgender boy wins Texas girls wrestling championship
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 transgender wrestler from Euless Trinity High School will likely only accomplish one of those feats this weekend.
On Saturday, he beat Chelsea Sanchez 12-2 to earn the championship. The Associated Press reports that, upon winning his medal, Mack said, "I wouldn't be here today if it weren't for my teammates". That's honestly what the spotlight should've been on, my teammates.
Beggs, a junior at Euless Trinity, is taking testosterone injections and throughout Beggs' season, people have questioned whether or not it gives the transgender student an unfair advantage over the other girls, The Washington Post reported.
Beggs is amending his lawsuit to request the UIL make its gender policies mirror the NCAA, which allows transitioning athletes to compete as they gender they identify following a year of hormone treatments.

Of Roof's 33 federal counts, which included hate crimes and religious freedom violations, 18 were eligible for the death penalty. Roof is also seeking a new federal trial, saying prosecutors didn't have jurisdiction to bring their case against him.
He wants to compete against other boys, but is willing to follow the rules.
A year ago, superintendents and athletic directors voted overwhelmingly to require Texas public school officials to use a birth certificate to determine an athlete's gender, with transgender advocates warning that such requirements would violate the UIL's constitution and federal Title IX laws. "It's because she's taking [a testosterone] enhancement. We just don't think it's fair that Mack should wrestle, either be allowed or should be required to wrestle, against girls". "I feel so sick and disgusted by the discrimination not by the kids, the PARENTS AND COACHES", he wrote on Facebook.
"These kids don't care who you put in front of them to wrestle", Beggs wrote. A boy who says he's a girl because he wants to wrestle girls would have to be allowed to wrestle girls. In a previous tournament, two of Beggs' opponents forfeited rather than fight.
"There's a reason they're called performance-enhancing drugs and why they're banned by every anti-doping agency in the world", said the father who filed the suit, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.
The large contingent of media that followed Beggs on Friday was back again on Saturday, documenting every move.
