Female athletes have been blazing a trail in the sport of wrestling.
AGWSR’s Ali Gerbracht has been a part of the group building momentum towards being officially sanctioned by the Iowa Girls High School Athletic Union (IGHSAU). Gerbracht was the first-ever State champion in girls wrestling after the Iowa Wrestling Coaches and Officials Association (IWCOA) held a girls tournament in Waverly last January. She won the 106-pound title. There were 85 other girls over the 10 weights contested. At the end of the season, Gerbracht was named the first Ms. Wrestler in Iowa.
