“A lot of people have inspired me over the years but I didn’t have wrestling growing up so I didn’t really have that wrestling hero. The wrestlers who have inspired me have been Adeline (Gray), Elena Pirozhkova, and Randi Miller. The reason I say those three is because each of those inspired me in a way that made me a better wrestler today.  “Elena Pirozhlkova would go out of her way to tell me …. rest of the story at … https://www.trackwrestling.com/PortalPost.jsp?TIM=1589402424272&twSessionId=mdtpraaxpf&postId=781902135&mc_cid=0f2858c4d6&mc_eid=2ef7cbca4b

6 } – Parkland’s Zumas building a path to PIAA girls wrestling
By Brad Wilson | For lehighvalleylive.com
Brooke Zumas wants to make it easy for girls wrestling to make it big in Pennsylvania. The path to do so is plainly laid out. The PIAA will consider sanctioning girls wrestling as a sport — just as the NJSIAA has done, with all that implies, such as state championships and the like — when there are 100 certified girls teams at member schools. Right now, there’s one — Lancaster McCaskey. …. rest of the story at … https://www.lehighvalleylive.com/highschoolsports/2020/05/parklands-zumas-building-a-path-to-piaa-girls-wrestling.html?mc_cid=0f2858c4d6&mc_eid=2ef7cbca4b

9 } – What kind of impact could Women’s Wrestling have in Nebraska?
By Cody Mainquist / May 16, 2020
The debate has been going on for some time now in this state about “Should Women’s wrestling become a sanctioned sport?” It is one of the fastest growing sports across the country and is only getting bigger. Currently 23 states have it sanctioned including bordering states Colorado, Missouri, South Dakota and Kansas. In addition, Alaska, Arkansas, Arizona, California, Connecticut, Georgia, Hawaii, Maine, Maryland, Oklahoma, Massachusetts, Montana, New Jersey, New Mexico, Oregon, Texas, Utah and Washington have all sanctioned the sport in the last few years. South Dakota and Oklahoma were the most recent states to sanction the sport on April 21st and April 22nd.  Nebraska can’t drag their feet on this subject, now is the time to add it and not fall behind the curve.
The Numbers
The numbers don’t lie when it comes to the sport. On February 1st, NSWCA held the first ever girls state tournament in York. They had 115 girls competing from 37 different schools and that number is expected to grow. Former Olympian Georgi Ivanov with NEUSA Wrestling said “Currently over 200 youth girls are registered with NEUSA cards.” Nebraska Wrestling Academy in Omaha has over 40 girls alone in their room training. Nebraska City and West Point each had 22 girls out for wrestling this season. Schools across the state are starting to see an increase in girls competing.  …. rest of story at … https://newrestle.com/2020/05/16/what-kind-of-impact-could-womens-wrestling-have-in-nebraska/?mc_cid=73440286e7&mc_eid=2ef7cbca4b

10 } – Some colleges are ‘using pandemic as an excuse’ to eliminate athletics programs
Sports programs are starting to fall like dominoes as college athletics departments face unprecedented financial challenges during the coronavirus pandemic. The baseball programs at Bowling Green State University in Ohio and at Furman University in South Carolina, which were eliminated this week, are the latest casualties among more than a dozen Division I athletics teams to have been cut nationwide since last month. B. David Ridpath, associate professor of sports business at Ohio University and interim president of the Drake Group, a national nonprofit advocacy organization, said he believes some college leaders are conveniently using COVID-19’s economic impact as a reason for trimming sports, instead of implementing other cost-cutting measures. …. rest of the story at … https://www.mycentraljersey.com/story/sports/college/2020/05/19/colleges-using-pandemic-excuse-cut-sports-programs/5225835002/?mc_cid=09c8756a50&mc_eid=2ef7cbca4b
