Girl Wins State Wrestling Match From Forfeit

Iowa State Wrestling Tournament Photo From

This story grabbed my attention this morning because I have a 11 year old son who is a wrestler. At practice he is paired up with a 11 year old girl (which he also attends school with) to spar with. Last year when he first started wrestling he was a little apprehensive about grabbing her and forcing her around until he was completely dominated by her skills as a wrestler. Yes, the girl is much better than my son and that is O.K. to say, even he will admit it. My point is this, if girls want to wrestle, great. More power to them. I do think they should start them young, like in my son’s case so the team and their opponents get used to touching a female. Wrestling is about skill, determination, strength and  athleticism not just domination of one opponent over the other. In my opinion it is one of the more difficult sports to compete in. In the story out of Iowa I do applaud the wrestler who forfeited the match and stood for his beliefs even when the state title was on the line. That takes a lot of courage.
