BRUCE, Miss. (WCBI) – On April 1, a Bruce High School powerlifter was in danger of being disqualified from the state championship because of her hair.

“I was a little angry,” said junior Diamond Campbell. “I [felt] shame a little bit, I kind of felt humiliated, like I was being picked on in a way.”

Those are not the emotions a high school athlete should feel during a state championship. But it’s how Campbell says she felt after what she thought was her first lift during the MHSAA Girls Class 1 competition.

“The head judge came up and she said, ‘She can’t wear the beads,’” Campbell says.,Powerlifters%20rally%20to%20help%20girl%20at%20state,faced%20disqualification%20over%20hair%20beads&text=BRUCE%2C%20Miss.,%2C%E2%80%9D%20said%20junior%20Diamond%20Campbell.
