On Wednesday the "Panther 8" competed in the program's first ever all-female quadrangular meet hosted by Peoria Richwoods.
Several of the girls have brothers that were or are currently in the Panther program. Most notable is freshman Gracelyn Friedrichsen whose oldest brother Gabe finished fourth at state his senior year in 2019 and brother Elijah who is currently ranked 8th in Class A at 285#. "Watching my brothers wrestle, being brought along to all their meets, showed me that it was fine if I wanted to do it." ."I want people to know it's not just a boys' sport but that women have the capability of doing what men can do too."
"It took a lot of good kids and coaches to get me here," said McCullough who is in his 26th year as a head coach.
The Panthers hit four 3-point buckets by four different players in the second quarter to outscore the Storm 16-4 and take a commanding 26-8 halftime lead and coasted to the win.
Miner placed 14th in a field of 72 and qualified individually placing 4th among non-team qualifiers.
