Teen wrestler taking testosterone for female-to-male transition wins championship match on forfeit

Beggs, a junior at Trinity High School in Euless, is transitioning from female to male and has been taking testosterone since October 2015 for that purpose, the Dallas Morning News reported.

The other twist, the paper noted, is that Beggs identifies as male and reportedly wants to wrestle boys — but state athletic rules prohibit the three-time state qualifier from doing so. One policy says student-athletes must compete as the gender listed on their birth certificates, the Morning News reported, adding that another rule forbids boys from wrestling girls, and vice versa.

So Beggs must wrestle girls.
