Last week the Los Alamos High School Girls Wrestling team began their 4th season, in a room of their own. Obtaining this room was part of a larghe effort from administration, coaching staff, athletes and parents. The Girls program has grown to 12 young women with only two seniors. The Ladies will kick-off their season on Wednesday Nov. 30 at Cleveland High School. Coaches Emily Tew and Ben Stone are very excited based on the effort put forward in practice this week.

Girls Wrestling has grown dramatically in the last 15 years, and is a fantastic opportunity for young women (especially with more than 100 colleges having sanctioned women’s programs). It is the only combative sport that is offered through the public school system in this area. As such it gives young women a unique opportunity to explore a skill set they will not find anywhere else. It is never too late to join in with wrestling. Women are needed at the forefront of this sport in all roles including athletes, coaches, and officials.
