Senior Martha Hinneh Marian's first State Wrestling Champ
Susan Rosenlof
KETVs coverage on the growing popularity of girls wrestling features Marian senior Martha Hinneh.

Congratulations to senior Martha Hinneh. She placed first in the State in Girls 190 Wrestling and she is the first Marian wrestler to win a state title.

Sanctioned in 2021, NSAA girls wrestling is still in its early years but interest in the sport is growing rapidly. According to Ron Higdon, NSAA assistant director, the sport has nearly tripled in size.

This year more than 1,000 girls competed in the 2024 NSAA wrestling championships."The first year that we had it, we had about 700 girls, and then last year we had a little over 1,200," said Higdon. "And this year we have over 1,700. The growth has been exceptional and actually exceeded expectations at every turn. So we're pretty pleased with it."
