Preview: Varsity girls wrestling competes at Ayala Invitational

Varsity girls wrestling will participate in the Ayala invitational at Ruben S. Ayala High School Saturday, Jan. 18.

In preparation for the tournament, members have been reviewing fundamental drills, such as double legs and front Headlocks, and fine-tuning their techniques on the mat. All wrestlers have trained with the coaches individually to learn new techniques and have practiced live wrestling with partners to simulate a real matches. In addition, every participant has kept a healthy diet to maintain her current weight class.

“Before matches, there is always a little bit of stress, and [we get] pretty nervous,” junior Karla Galvin said. “But at the same time, I’m really hyped up to go out there and wrestle and put my practice to good use.”
