Such as, Rapid City, Chamberlain, Aberdeen, Brandon Valley, Harrisburg, etc. She is a wrestler that is willing to do anything it takes to become the best she can. She is definitely a hard working girl. Her hard work led to one of her most recent victories against Chamberlain – fall at 2:34.
Our 120 girls, Brooklyn C. and Rachel D.
RHS freshman, Brooklyn has already wrestled all over South Dakota. Her dad, a past wrestler as well as her brother – inspired her top join.
