Schoolgirl

Out of 13 possible weight classes, only seven were represented (after 79 pounds was combined with the 85-pound weight class and 92 pounds was combined with the 97-pound weight class) with a total of twenty wrestlers competing. Driving home the point I made in yesterday’s post that, regardless of the sport’s impressive growth nationwide, California still has some work to do in freestyle participation … Read more

2019 CA-USA Wrestling Kids Folkstyle Championships Girls Results

The 2019 CA-USA Wrestling Kids Folkstyle Championships took place this past weekend.

A total of 195 girls registered for the tournament, which is a 1% increase over last year’s 193.

But, despite the concerning participation numbers, congratulations to all placing wrestlers are still in … Read more
