Teenage girl wins state wrestling championship after defeating field of boys

16-year-old Heaven Fitch became the first female to win a North Carolina state high school wrestling championship earlier this week in Greensboro after defeating a field of mostly boys.

Without enough female wrestlers to form a division of their own in North Carolina, the few girls who wrestle do so in the boys divisions.

Fitch won her championship February 22 in the 106-pound (48 kilogram) weight class after finishing the season with a 54-4 record and winning the award for Most Outstanding Wrestler.
