On Saturday, February 10, two Trego freshmen girls—Sydney Boyle and Jessika Chapman—competed at the second annual KSHSAA Girls’ State Wrestling in McPherson. Boyle left the meet with a fourth place medal around her neck.

In her first round, Sydney Boyle wrestled Cheyenne Harris of Humbolt and won by major decision. Boyle fell by decision in her second round to Haley Schafer from McPherson. Against Erie’s Katy Rounds, Boyle won by fall in the third round. In the final round, however, Altamont-Labette County’s Abbie Jones proved to be tough competition, beating Boyle by fall.

Jessika Chapman also attended. In her first round, Kaleigh Marbut of McPherson won by fall over Chapman. After a bye round, Meriden-Jefferson West’s Montana Grahem won by fall over Chapman.

One hundred and thirty-five girl wrestlers, a number nearly double to the number last year, represented 57 schools.

Coach Jeremy Samson commented on the event.

"This was a very cool event that really changed my perspective on girls wrestling.  This movement is real; there have now been nine states that are sponsoring wrestling as an official girls sport.  I believe in the near future KSHSAA will sponsor a girls’ only division."
