Southwestern’s Walters Earns Girls State Title At 139 Pounds
February 22, 2018


Southwestern sophomore Mika Walters attended the inaugural Public School Athletic League New York Girls Folkstyle State Invitational championships held in the Bronx this past Saturday. With a single-elimination bracket of 20 other girls varsity wrestlers from all over New York state, Walters was able to win four matches, each with a pin in the first period, to win the first-ever PSAL championship at 139 pounds. Currently there are six states that sanction girls wrestling. Georgia and Oregon will join the movement for the 2018-19 season.
