Rinehart District Wrestling Champion

Emma Rinehart was crowned District Wrestling champion in the 115-pound weight class, recording a fall over all opponents.  Emma is a returning District Champion and will make her second trip to the Girls State Wrestling Championship.

“I am extremely proud of how Emma performed this weekend.  As a returning district champion from the previous year, there always is that added stress to repeat,” commented Coach Nate Cornell.  “Emma had a tough district bracket with 4 returning state qualifiers, and she responded impressively by pinning all of her opponents.”

” It is important to manage my weight early in the week, so I have fresh legs this weekend,” Emma stated.  “Right now I plan to continue working hard, staying healthy, and staying focused so I can reach my goal of being a state placer.”

“Emma wrestled with a lot of confidence and scored points in every position neutral, top, and bottom,” Coach Cornell.  She will look to continue to do so next week as she advances to the State Wrestling tournament at Hilliard Davidson High School this Saturday.
