Wilsonville Wrestling meet v.s Putnam. The Wildcats won 39 to 30.

With winter sports back in full swing, one sport that generally doesn’t get much spotlight is wrestling, especially girls wrestling. 

COVID-19 changed how every sport season looked and with wrestling being such a high contact sport, you can imagine how the regulations would change. “We were lucky to have gotten a wrestling season. There were a lot of changes and masks made it hard but there were changes throughout the season that allowed us to not have to wear masks while wrestling.” said junior wrestler Sky Wellborn. Senior Hannah Gillas agreed, adding that “usually bus rides are a big team bonding thing where everybody can crowd and have fun but social distancing made it harder for us to have a team chemistry.” 

Wrestlers are looking forward to having a normal and full season this winter. “I am really excited to see what my last season as a senior is going to bring. I am excited for the growth of the women’s wrestling program as well. I am looking forward to giving it my all and getting the most out of this season.” stated Gillas. “I am looking forward to the trips and memories I get to have and meeting new people along the way,” said Wellborn. 

Wilsonville starts off their season with a meet on Saturday, December 4th at Oregon City High School. The Wildcats are prepared and ready to take on this season! 

I’m really excited about the growth of our women’s wrestling program, our numbers have more than doubled since my freshman year.”
