CHSAA rolls out the mats for groundbreaking state wrestling tournament for girls
DENVER -- From take downs to rowdy crowds, Saturday’s state wrestling championships at Thornton High School were action-packed. But as heated as things get on the mats, the competitors at this tournament are a special community. “Really, we all just support each other," says Loveland junior Audrey Bankes, who placed second in the 118-lb. weight class. "We have way more fun and are joking around with each other more than the boys do. It’s just a community of wrestlers, we all want each other to do well, honestly.”
