Franklin Regional to host girls' wrestling clinics this month
Following the addition of an all-girls wrestling division in the youth state championship tournament, Franklin Regional High School will host clinics on Oct. 15 and Oct. 21 for girls ages 12 and under interested in participating in the sport.
Just under a year ago, the Pennsylvania Junior Wrestling Committee voted to institute three girls' divisions starting in the 2017-18 season.
There will be 14 weight classes spread over the 8U, 9-10 and 11-12 age divisions as a first effort for separate girls' divisions. All of these will be officially included in the 2017-18 season and will advance to the youth state championships
The Oct. 15 clinic will be from 1 to 3 p.m., run by Young Guns founder and coach Jody Strittmatter. The Oct. 21 clinic will be 9 a.m. to noon, run by Franklin Regional youth wrestling head coach Dan Megaludis. Both will be held in the wrestling room at the high school, 3200 School Road, Murrysville.
