Alabama Teen Beauty Queen Wins State High School Wrestling Title

She is an American beauty. A beauty you never want to mess with. She can proudly walk on stage and follow her on the mat. For Miss Junior Teen United States, it’s about more than beauty. It’s about gut wrenches, cradles and half nelsons. Katherine Grigbsy of Trussville, Alabama has a motor that won’t stop. A 16-year-old sophomore at Hewitt-Trussville High School, Kat has been a competitive gymnast for over a decade. “She hates losing more than she wins,” her father Kevin said. “It can be a beauty pageant, sports, school, anything.” It was last Friday and Kat’s time had come. The straight-A student was hoping to make a grade in the state high school wrestling tournament. “AHSAA gives girls a try-out in wrestling,” says Kevin. “The state tournament featured over 300 girls in ten different weight classes.” The American beauty meant business. Kat advanced to the final match in the 114-pound division, her fifth match of the tournament. “It didn’t take long,” Kevin laughed when asked about the championship match. “Kat nailed a very talented wrestler from Weaver High School to win the state championship,” he adds. The state wrestling champion is back at school this week. Kat will study a bit this afternoon and she can volunteer at Sleep In Heavenly Peace. Kat helps make and paint beds for the needy. “In our town, no child sleeps on the floor,” says Kat. Let’s congratulate a young woman who has made a name for herself. A young woman who can also leave her mark. “Their drive is incredible,” says Hewitt-Trussville wrestling coach Chris Pike. “She’s one of those kids who excels at everything she does.” Remember the name Kat Grigsby. An American beauty who occasionally breaks a nail. An American beauty who’s badass too.
