The Northmont Middle School has female wrestlers this year.  This is not unusual for the middle school, but this is the first year that three special young female athletes have persevered and will be part of this successful team this season.  Angel Owens, Kyla Harden, and Hannah Wilkins are working hard and have had success on the mat. When Coach, Chris Mellott was asked, “Are the girls well received?” he replied, “Yes, some boys were hesitant at first to wrestle them, but they got used to it.” The team occasionally will wrestle female wrestlers on other teams and it is becoming more and more common.  When teammate Angel Owens was asked why she joined the team, she replied, “I had wrestled at home with my uncle and thought it would be fun.” The wrestling team will wrestle at GWOC this weekend.
