Is it likely to get a construction job if you're a girl?

I am a 19 year old college student and I am pretty physically fit. I was looking at our school's website for jobs and there are some pipe digging construction jobs available. I lift weight regularly and can bench about 150, I also work at a post office job where I am lifting and transporting semi-heavy boxes all day. Will I get laughed out of the room if I apply for this job or do you think I have a shot?

If you can do the job there's no reason why you can't. And in this day and age they can't say, "You're a woman, no." Since that's sue-able. So why not just go and give it a shot if you're confident enough that you can do it?
