This semester I’m following the girls wrestling team at Senn HS which is coached by Angela Kus. Senn is the first CPS HS to have enough girls wrestling to form a team. Lakeview HS now has enough girls to form a team as well and in January the two teams met for the first ever CPS wrestling meet between two female teams. Normally girls go along to boys meets and wrestle girls if any happen to be on an opposing team or wrestle teammates or just wrestle boys to get experience in competition.
At a recent state qualifier Coach Kus’ girls team (she coaches both boys and girls teams at Senn) out wrestled her boys with 9 out of 11 of her girls placing in the tournament.
Two of the girls on her team, Bernice and Mia, are best friends and chose to join the wrestling team at Senn as their “best friend activity”. At the state qualifier Bernice placed and Mia was upset that she did not. Bernice said she would share 5th place with Mia.
