Ten-year-old Female Wrestler Wins Two Consecutive Boys State Championships

This girl is tough!

Makeba Elliott, an honor student at Blackhawk Elementary in Park Forest, has won two consecutive boys' state wrestling championships. Last month, the Park Forest fifth grader -- whose quickest takedown was in 18 seconds -- ended a 54-5 season by taking top honors in the boys' 2005 Midget State Championship. She also won the boys' midget championship in 2004.

Now, as some of you know, I've always been a fan of girls wrestling boys, but mainly in jello, mud and grits arenas rather that school gymnasiums.

Makeba said she plans to stick with wrestling for a while because: "I like to see all the boys crying and their coaches yelling at them. I like to show them girls are as good as boys."

I think this girl has potential!
