Iowa Wrestler Refuses to Wrestle Girl

Posted by Jeffrey Pape on


What are your thoughts on the male student in Iowa that did not wrestle the female wrestler? I suspect this happens way more often than it gets reported or you hear about it through the media.

I think I could go either way with this topic and could see both sides. The wrestler in me says, whoever is standing there across the mat is someone I need to wrestle and try to pin.

The parent in me, supports the male high school student's choice to not wrestle a female. What makes this so interesting is this was at the State tournament. Man that stinks that he had to forfeit.

Part of me also thinks it stinks that he even had to make this choice. How often does this even happen in high school sports.

What are your thoughts on this?
