Watch: 'I love the mental toughness:' High school wrestler has sights set on state title
SNOHOMISH, Wash. - Women's wrestling is a sport that is growing on the collegiate level, due in large part to the growth of the sport at the high school level.
Starting Thursday, the best boys and girls wrestlers in the state will go heat to head with state titles on the line at the Mat Classic at the Tacoma Dome.
Kiley Hubby, a sophomore at Glacier Peak High School in Snohomish, won the 161-pound title in the High School Varsity division of the Women's West Coast Tournament of Champions held in California in December.
"I love the mental toughness it gives me a lot of attritbutes I can take on outside of wrestling. It makes me a tougher person," said Hubby.
She began wrestling when she was in 4th grade because she wanted to compete in the same sport as her brother.
Now she's hoping to take home another championship this week.
