COLORADO SPRINGS, CO. – Wrestling mats around eastern Oregon are filling with girls and a new national study shows our schools are not alone.

On July 13, the USA Wrestling Girls High School Development Committee released a new report showing the increasing popularity of girls wrestling both in Oregon and around the nation. Across the United States, 34,281 high school girls were on the mats last season, up from 25,290 just one year ago.

Oregon, including a large contingent of eastern Oregon female wrestlers, saw 1,412 girls on the mats last season. Consider that in 2014, that number was only 272 participants.

Oregon has some work to do to catch California. Our neighbor lists 3,806 female high school wrestlers.
