North Carolina Girl Wrestler Dominates Boys To Become First Ever Female State Champion

 

 



 

It seems like since Ronda Rousey broke down the doors of martial arts popularity for women, more and more young women are finding their home in the grappling arts.

1️⃣0️⃣6️⃣lbs Heaven Fitch

One young lady is pounding the mat for girl wrestlers in North Carolina.

Heaven Fitch became the first girl to win a North Carolina High School Athletic Association individual wrestling state championship last weekend in Greensboro. Fitch beat Luke Wilson of Robbinsville for the championship in the 106-pound weight class.

“I kind of dominated the match if I’m being honest,” Fitch told WGHP. Fitch is a senior at Uwharrie Charter High School in Asheboro.

Fitch ended the season with a 54-4 record and won the Most Outstanding Wrestler Award in the 1A classification. Fitch placed fourth in the state in 2019.

“I’m just glad I can be a role model for people younger than me and it’s so insane to be inspiring to others. To think that others look up to me is kind of crazy.”
