No exceptions are mentioned for "transgender students" or boys or girls undergoing "transitioning" to the opposite sex.
"I put too much blood, sweat and tears, I put too much B.S. into this journey that I wanted to come out on top", Beggs said.
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.
You may remember Beggs's story, previous year he was the focus of a huge controversy regarding him wrestling in the girls' division. That didn't stop me from being who I was. He beat Chelsea Sanchez - who he beat for the title in 2017 - in the final match Saturday. Beggs was undefeated this year, entering the state tournament with a 32-0 record.

"They're saying 'steroids.' They're saying, 'Oh, they're beating up on girls, ' " Beggs said, according to the News. "It has more to do with skill and discipline than strength".
Many in the crowd booed, however, when the steroid-pumped girl defeated her opponent in the last bout in about 10 seconds and was declared state champion.
The solitude allowed him to concentrate on the task ahead and perhaps shield him from attacks on social media and occasional insults from the stands - or even other wrestling mats - during meets. "If you're going to talk down to someone that just wants to pursue a wresting dream, to pursue any dream in general, who are you to as a person to talk down to an 18-year-old that wants to succeed in life but can't do anything about it right now?"
A senior at Euless Trinity High School near Dallas, Beggs anticipates competing against boys when she goes to college in the fall.
Beggs wants to wrestle in the NCAA and is entertaining a scholarship offer from an out of state school. It was done to help schools determine competition, according to the UIL's deputy director Jamie Harrison.
