“I believe for women’s wrestling to continue to grow at the collegiate level and youth (K through 12)  — we have to start producing more female coaches,” said Eric Everard, head coach for the Vista Ridge girls wrestling team. “Developing the next generation to go into coaching is very important. We want the girls who are competing now to be comfortable taking on the role of a wrestling coach … female coaches for the generation is very important.” 

Wrestling will resume again in mid-November through mid-February.
