Girls HS State Champ help

Recommended Posts

Kaylee Adams a freshmen at Portage High School (IN) became the schools first girls HS Wrestling State Champion at the 113lb weight class January 19th 2018. Indiana started a separate Girls HS state championship last year ran by the "IHSWCA" (Indiana High School Wrestling Coaches Association) unfortunately for Adams, girls wrestling has not been sanctioned by Indiana High School Athletic Association the athletic governing body for Indiana High School Sports. The IHSWCA is actively trying to get it sanctioned. What this means is Kaylee accomplished her goal of winning a High School State wrestling Championship as a freshmen but will not be honored as the boys do when they win a State title! She will not get her name enshrined on the school walls, she will not have a banner displayed in the wrestling room, and she will not receive a State Championship ring! Not the way she dreamed about before winning the State title. She dreamed about being the first female on the wrestling room walls, the first female with a wrestling State Championship ring! 

Kaylee not only puts in work in the High School room with nationally ranked Portage wrestler's (all boys currently) she trains with Elite Athletic Club a wrestling Academy in Lake Station Indiana. 

Kaylee was honored by several newspaper articles, as well as the local Mayors office, and school board members. She will be the first lady to ever receive her Varsity letter at Portage HS! This being said, we hope to raise the funds to purchase her a State Championship ring that she deserves. 

Although this has discouraged Kaylee she has still kept her head up and continues to work hard as she is now training for various National tournaments in the off season.

After learning that Kaylee would not receive a State Championship ring the school corporation stepped in to ensure that her accomplishment was recognized and will be purchasing her ring!! So with that being said all donations have been refunded!
