Vayle-Rae Baker Wins Her 5th National Wrestling Title
A lot's changed since Newswatch 16 last checked in with Vayle-Rae Baker in 2016. "I've had so many opportunities since then and so many people that have walked into my life and just given me new chances," Baker said. "I think I've grown a lot as an athlete and as a person." She was two-time national champion then, already a trailblazer locally for girls in wrestling. Now 18 years old, Baker is the number two-ranked girl in the nation at 117 pounds and after last week's Marine Corps Junior National Championships in North Dakota, she's now a five-time national champion.
