Lancaster Clears Female Wrestler to Join Boys Team
November 27, 2019


The 12-year-old female wrestler at Lancaster High School is now officially cleared to wrestle on the JV boys team.

Trista Blasz, a seventh grade student, has been wrestling since she was 8 and even won a state championship earlier this year.

In August, her mom began working with coaches at Lancaster High School who wanted Trista to compete at the varsity level.

However, Dr. Michael Terranova, an independent contractor with the district for nearly 40 years, denied her multiple times from joining the boys’ team.
