Is it normal for a five-year-old girl to have sweaty underarms?

Is it normal for a five-year-old girl to have sweaty armpits? It's not all the time, but when she's hot (physical exertion or weather). I am seeing sweat marks in the underarms of her shirts.

Kids are certainly allowed to sweat in their armpits at any age. What is unusual is significant body odor before the onset of puberty.
