While the tournament determined a state champion for New Jersey wrestlers only, outside competitors from Pennsylvania and New York were also invited to participate. Girls from 6 different BTS sponsored school sponsored programs took part in the travel event. All participants wrestled with pride and good sportsmanship, garnering positive comments from officials , parents and coaches of other teams praising the girls’ wrestling skills and camaraderie. The all-girls travel team will hit the road again on Saturday Feb. 8th traveling to Connecticut for the Green Knights All Girls Tournament.
