Budding wrestling stars have their wounds licked by a teenager who has become the very first fighter to win a public school championship in North Carolina.
Boys across the state were comfortably beaten by 16-year-old Heaven Fitch, who was in seventh heaven after winning a prestigious tournament hosted by the North Carolina High School Athletic Association.
She won in the 106 lb (48 kg) weight category – an eight-person competition that included her and seven men, three of whom stood sadly alongside Heaven as she beamed for a photo in her medal. winner.
“I am really overwhelmed – it is like crazy what I have done, it is not yet really sunken,” she told WRAL-TV.
She added, “I just struggled as best I could and I sort of dominated the (final) match, if I’m honest.”
Heaven of Uwharrie Charter defeated Luke Wilson of Robbinsville in the final 11-3.
This magnificent victory was the perfect way to crown a season that allowed him to win 54 games and lose only four, earning him the most remarkable wrestler crown in his division.
Heaven said she “never expected” so much success when she started high school, even though she has perfected her combat schools since fighting with her older brothers when she was a child.
His post-match Instagram post showed a lot of self-confidence, saying, “I did it again, I wrote the story.”
