Girls wrestling is getting a solid foothold in Iowa. While it isn’t sanctioned, girls-only teams and tournaments are forming across the state. While her AGWSR Cougar teammates were wrestling to third at the St. Edmond Duals not even an hour north in Fort Dodge, freshman Trinity Rotgers was at one of those girls meets in Ogden.
The AGWSR 138-pounder was one of 39 girls in the tournament. Humboldt (16) and Osage (13) accounted for 26 of them. With help from Ackley-Geneva three-time state place winner and current Aplington-Pakersburg/Grundy Center head coach Brian Benning, Rotgers pinned her way through to her second title of the season.
