For the first time ever, this year’s Gene Brigham Memorial Tournament also had a Girls Only Division. There were several girls who competed against the boys – and two of them, Wylie and Macaluso, even placed in the top 6! However, hosting a tournament with a Girls Only Division is a huge step in getting Girls Wrestling sanctioned in New York State. Congratulations to Pine Bush’s Brooke Tarshis and to Bellport’s Cadence Howard for winning their weight classes at yesterday’s tournament! Great job girls!!!
