The wave of interest in girls wrestling is “significant” because the sport offers a wide range of benefits, Horrocks said.
“Girls’ wrestling will instill in female athletes confidence, mental toughness, self esteem, grit, self reliance and discipline,” he added. “It encourages physical fitness, builds character, teaches highschoolers how to overcome obstacles, handle their emotions, respect authority and the importance of being a good teammate. Ultimately, wrestling teaches that success has to be earned through hard work and success.”
