Hawaii One of Only 3 States to Have State Championships for Girls Wrestling

Did you know that Hawaii is one of only 3 states in the nation to have a State Championship for Girls Wrestling?  The other states are Texas and Washington.

I remember the first time our school wrestled a school with a girl on their team.  No one wanted to wrestle the girl.  I’ve seen some of the girls wrestle here in Hawaii… and I’m sure they could take out a lot of the guys!
