       Olathe High School Girls Wrestling team dominated their opponents in their first ever home wrestling dual which was against North Fork Girls Wrestling Team with a score of 27-12. Then, on January 7th, the team traveled to Alamosa High School where they competed in a one day tournament and placed second out of ten teams.

January 6th was the first ever girls wrestling dual in the history of Olathe High School, they came out of the dual with a win. Olathe and North Fork each don’t have all of their weight classes filled, but all of the girls on both teams got matches

“It went good, having the first official home dual at Olathe High School and winning it, not only winning it, but dominating almost every match was huge,” said head coach Ryan Corn, “It was fun to be there, we had a very big crowd and a very supportive community in Montrose County.”

On January 7th, the team traveled to Alamosa, and competed in a ten team tournament. Olathe placed second with 78.0 points, Grand Junction Central placed first with 141.0 points, and Alamosa High School placed third with 69.0 points.

“That was a tougher one for us, we kinda came into a slump there with a few girls, we had a few girls that didn’t perform as well as we thought they could, but at the same point we had come girls that hadn’t performed well all year really step it up, and I’m seeing some really good things,” Corn said.

Nikki Koch placed 1st in the 118 pound bracket, Angelina Bollinger placed 3rd in the 127 pound weight bracket, Laeliana Delgado placed 4th in the 136 pound weight bracket, Allie Stambaugh placed 2nd in the 147 pound weight bracket, Aby England placed 3rd in the 161 pound weight bracket, and Lynessia Duran placed 3rd in the 215 pound weight bracket.

“I feel like I did the best I could, but I felt like I still performed well. Overall, the season has been going really good, there has been some set backs, but we pushed through them,” said Junior Angelina Bollinger.

The team was scheduled to compete in Grand Junction in the Grand Junction MLK Invitational the weekend after.
