Judge Rules on Wrestling Decision in Northumberland County

Female student allowed to wrestle on boy's team.
Herndon, Northumberland County- A new wrestler will be taking to the mat at a Middle School in Northumberland County.
  A federal judge is allowing seventh-grader Aurdiana Beattie to be a member of the all-boys wrestling team at Line Mountain Middle School.     Brian and Angie Beattie of Herndon filed a lawsuit last year, saying their daughter was being denied the opportunity to wrestle because of her gender.
    The school district argued that there are psychological, physical and moral risks for girls wrestling boys.
    The judge said the district did not present any expert testimony or examples to support those claims.
