Even though most conservatives would applaud Texas schools' traditional - or biblical - take on gender identification, many take issue with the fact that Beggs is able to take male hormones in the form of testosterone and compete, which is not allowed in most collegiate and professional sports because of its performance-enhancing effects that gives athletes an unfair and unnatural advantage.

Last season, Beggs also defeated Sanchez, 12-1, in the girls Class 6A championship a year ago. He is allowed to take the testosterone, even though State and UIL rules prohibit their use by high school athletes, because they are "dispensed, prescribed, delivered and administered by a medical practitioner for a valid medical objective".

Having won his second state championship on Saturday Beggs told... No matter who you put in front of me, I feel like a champion no matter what.

Beggs, an 18-year-old from Euless Trinity High, was met with a wave of cheers and boos at the end of his final match against Chelsea Sanchez of Katy Morton Ranch on Saturday.

Beggs was met with cheers and boos from the crowd after his win.

"Even though I was put in this position, even though I didn't want to be put in this position, even though I wanted to wrestle the guys, I still had to wrestle the girls", Beggs told the paper.

"He has so much respect for all the girls he wrestles", McNew said.

She was hosted in Seoul by President Moon Jae-in, who has long advocated talks rather than confrontation with North Korea. He told a White House news conference that could be "very rough" and "very unfortunate for the world".

Beggs entered the state tournament with a 32-0 record, beating three female wrestlers on his way to the championship.

Many parents have been outraged to see their daughters wrestling someone who, effectively, has the strength of a young man.

Texas public high school policy dictates that students must compete under the gender that they were defined as at birequestedAs part of his transition, Beggs has started a low-dose of testosterone.

It was done to help schools determine competition, said Jamie Harrison, the UIL's deputy director. "It also shielded him [her] from possible social media attacks and the insults that are sometimes shouted out from the stands or from other competitors". It just comes down to technique, who has the most heart.

He faced only one forfeit this season after one female opponent refused to wrestle him, against the wishes of her own coach and teammates, Ms McNew said.

In the past, Beggs has publicly said he would love to wrestle boys-and would do so, if not for the state athletic policy.

Texas has a new two-time high school wrestling champion.
