Inaugural high school girls wrestling invitational offers rare opportunity
February 17, 2019


SANBORN - Jessica Seekins wore her hair dyed pink and a look of dismay as she sat in the stands at the inaugural NYSPHSAA girls wrestling invitational tournament on Saturday afternoon at Niagara County Community College.

The Salamanca freshman had never wrestled another girl in a competitive environment, and this was supposed to be her chance. It was the reason she had traveled 80 miles to be here, the reason she wore a singlet, the reason for the tape wrapped snug around her wrestling shoes, keeping them tight against her ankles.
