CYPRESS - If the fervor over Euless Trinity transgender wrestler Mack Beggs during the last week could be swelled into one match, it was the junior's final one at the state wrestling championships on Saturday.

Beggs, who is transitioning from female to male but competing as a girl because of a University Interscholastic League rule, won gold in the Class 6A 110-pound bracket after a 12-2 major decision win over Morton Ranch's Chelsea Sanchez on Saturday at the Berry Center.

It caps a perfect season for Beggs (56-0), who easily won his four matches this weekend. Beggs defeated Clear Springs' Taylor Latham in the first round by major decision, 18-7, and Tascosa's Mya Engert by major decision, 12-4, in the quarterfinals Friday.

His semifinal win came against Grand Prairie's Kailyn Clay via pin earlier Saturday.

The controversy surrounding Beggs deals with the testosterone treatments part of his transition, with some believing it is an unfair advantage although it is allowed by the UIL because it is administered by a physician and for medical reasons. Beggs also has been denied the request to compete in the boys division because of a new UIL rule that states athletes must compete under the gender on their birth certificate.

Beggs competed in the previous two state tournaments but he become a national story after two opponents forfeited their match against him at regionals last week.

Still, Beggs swept through the weekend as if cameras didn't follow his every move.

...unless administered by a physician for medical reasons. This is a sad story for the girls that worked hard to compete against their peers. It is also sad that Mack and his parents don't see the inherit inequalities and do the right thing. They have neither honor or integrity. Qualities that won't come with the plastic first-place trophy.
