2019 CA-USA Wrestling Kids Folkstyle Championships Girls Results

The 2019 CA-USA Wrestling Kids Folkstyle Championships took place this past weekend. The California Grapplers came in first in each of the the three age divisions; intermediate, novice and schoolgirl. A total of 195 girls registered for the tournament, which is a 1% increase over last year’s 193.

And though, this is not the direction we want to see the event go in, I hope this is just an anomalous drop in the number of entries and next year’s numbers will be back on track.

Regardless of the number of wrestlers, those attending the event gave it their all in hopes of acquiring that much-prized bear. To those … Read more
