The #SanctionPA movement with Dr. Brooke Zumas and Pat Tocci – State of Wrestling Ep. 4

by | Mar 30, 2020 | The Mat Stats Show | 0 comments

The fourth installment of the NWCA’s official podcast, State of Wrestling, visits with Dr. Brooke Zumas and NWCA Senior Director Pat Tocci to talk about the #SanctionPA movement. Pennsylvania is one of the top wrestling states in the country in terms of quality and reputation. Where it falls behind is its sanctioning of high school girls wrestling. Less-established wrestling states like New Mexico and Arkansas have announced they were set to sanction girls wrestling, so now the #SanctionPA movement, in association with Wrestle Like A Girl and a number of other organizations are showing the pathway to get things working in the Keystone State.

Recently, J.P. McCaskey High School in Lancaster announced it would start a varsity girls wrestling team, the first PIAA-member school to do so. Zumas and Tocci explain what steps are needed for girls wrestling to become a reality at the PIAA.
