Mineral Point wrestler hopes the WIAA will sanction girls wrestling

Mineral Point wrestling hops WIAA will sanction girls wrestling

There are only 25 states in the country that recognize girls wrestling as a sanctioned high school sport. On Wednesday, Wisconsin could join that group and make history.

For Mineral Point wrestler Kylie Rule, it could change her life.

"It would give me more opportunities for different tournaments," she explained, "and it would give me more confidence."

For instance, a state championship at the Kohl Center - something Kylie has dreamed about.

"That would be super cool. Having all those people looking down on you on that one mat and the championships would be so cool," she said, "all the lights and everyone standing up and cheering."

This isn't just a big decision for her, but for the future of girls wrestling in the state of Wisconsin.

"I think it's important, the numbers will grow. Girls will get into it if they have something to look up to," she said.
