“Three Lady Badgers competed at the girls state tournament this past weekend in York. All three wrestled with a lot of heart. This being the first year we have offered girls wrestling here in Valentine, I was impressed with these girls tenacity and coachability. Emma Richards was our fourth girl this year. She was unable to compete due to an injury. These girls are trailblazers. I am excited about their future in this sport. I also feel that our girls program will continue to grow and improve,” said Coach Shane Allison.
