The Girl’s Wrestling Team concluded their season with the Florida Girls State Tournament hosted in Kissimmee, Florida. This year’s tournament had 317 women wrestlers representing 118 schools competing across the 16 weight classes. Many brackets held over 25 wrestlers, all competing for a top 6 placement.
Our entire wrestling program, boy’s and girl’s teams, has overcome several challenges throughout the season. Most notably, finding a way to continue with the season amid the Covid-19 pandemic safely. Limitations on live competition, new protocols for practice, and new state protocols were faced with the same attitude wrestlers bring to the mat.
No matter what the challenge, we will face it and overcome it. And that attitude yielded historic results as Admiral Farragut Academy BlueJackets placed its second Women’s Wrestling State Medalist in the 7-year history of the program.
