How important is girls wrestling? According to a tribstar.com story it is an important night for wrestling.
Terre Haute North Coach Mark Frisz"Really, women's wrestling could save the sport so to speak. I think it's great. It's good for the sport. Giving more kids more opportunities and hopefully it can continue to grow where it could be a separate girls team,. I feel bad for the girls sometimes that have to wrestle the guys. There's still a disadvantage and sometimes you feel bad for guys because you're raised to be kind and gentle to women and then go out and beat them. It's great if it grows and more girls get interested."
Girls competing in tournament talk about the opportunity:
