Said official instead lifted Rios left arm, declaring her the winner and chronologically, at least, given the moment the first girl to ever qualify, in the 84th installment of the event, for a podium finish at a Colorado high school state wrestling tournament. His decision to forfeit twice at the 2019 state tourney effectively eliminating himself from a competition he had a solid shot at winning on personal and religious grounds rather than wrestle two girl competitors, may divide your inner circle right down the middle. Dererra said the Johnstons have taken an admirable viewpoint on the bracket draw, as opposed to a litigious one; Federal law, he noted, states that girls and boys have the right to participate in any sanctioned sport in which a gender-specific alternative isnt available. CHSAA has run a pilot program with a female-specific state wrestling bracket in recent years, but Rios and Gallegos chose to test their skills climbing the boys postseason ladder.
