Check out the details. View the original.

NJSIAA assistant director Bill Bruno was admittedly surprised at the momentum girls wrestling gained in the state after the organization decided to add a girls regional and state tournament for the first time ever this season.

‘From when we got it organized in August to what we saw and witnessed in Atlantic City (for the state tournament) was crazy,’ said Bruno. ‘The region excitement with everybody in the building was electrifying, and then to see girls wrestling side by side with the boys was everything we could have hoped for.’

Quite a lot has been going on:

‘Inner beast’ comes out of girls at MP wrestling match (slide show)

MARYSVILLE ‘ Wrestling is bringing out the ‘inner beast’ in girls on the newly combined Marysville Getchell-Marysville Pilchuck high school team.

New coach Andie White said Wednesday that some of the girls kind of held back a little in practice. But that changed once matches started.

‘Their personalities did not come out’ until then, she said. Matches brought out ‘the inner beast in them.’

White said she is having so much fun coaching them because for most they are just learning the sport.

‘They’re like little sponges right now,’ soaking in everything they are being taught, she said.
