Article: Hildebrandt facing training decision

Recommended Posts

By Tim Creason Tribune Correspondent

Over the years, tremendous athletes have trained in the wrestling room at Penn High School.

State champs. National champs.


But a contender for the U.S. Olympic Team?

Kingsman coach Brad Harper says, “Why not?”

Sarah Hildebrandt, a senior at King University in Tennessee, has to make her decision in the next couple months.

The defending women’s collegiate wrestling champion in the 123-pound weight class, Hildebrandt is going all-out to make the U.S. Olympic Women’s Wrestling Team in 2016.

It’s not a pipe dream. Hildebrandt, a 2011 Penn graduate, is ranked No. 2 in the nation in the 55-kilogram (121-pound) weight class by USA Wrestling. She’s a member of Team USA, and will be leaving for St. Petersburg, Russia, to compete in the World Cup this March.
