It is sometimes thought that the world of amateur wrestling is purely a pursuit for boys, but try telling that to teenager Heaven Fitch, who just made history as the first female wrestler to win a state championship.

Since she was six years old, Fitch had an ambition to succeed in wrestling after seeing her older brothers compete in tournaments across the United States.

Last weekend, she has achieved the feat of becoming the first girl to win a North Carolina High School Athletic Association individual wrestling state championship.

Fitch was almost flawless in her run to the final in the 106-pound weight class, as she faced, and defeated, boys in each round before claiming victory in the final with a dominant score of 11-3.
