Tobe To Wrestle At the University of the Cumberlands
Girls wrestling is not a sanctioned sport in Ohio, so Ashley Tobe had to wrestle with the boys during her time in high school. Today it paid off as Tobe made it official signing a letter of intent to continue her wrestling career at the University of the Cumberlands.
Coldwater Head Wrestling Coach Rob SchmidtI am very proud and excited for Ashley as she finishes her high school career and prepares to to wrestle at the University of Cumberland on an all girls team. She has always worked hard and has never given up.
University of the Cumberlands Coach Donnie StephensAshley is a good kid with a nice family. After meeting them I knew that she we be a great addition to our school and team. We love bringing in girls from Ohio because they still have to compete with the boys. Ashley being able to make the squad and be competitive is one of the many reasons we want her to wear the red, white and blue.
