 Friday, June 15th, in what is believed to be the First Girls' Greco Duals Competition, 160 young ladies from 10 states making up 12 teams, wrestled 24 Greco Duals.  States represented at Pocatello, Idaho's Turf Wars, were Alaska, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, and Washington.  The Turf Wars Washington finished the Duals 5-0, and in what amounted to the finals, defeated Hawaii 40-33.  California finished in 3rd Place.  Girls Greco is alive and well out west!

The man behind this event is Ned Zollinger, a longtime supporter of Wrestling in The West.  Zollinger has been involved with USA Wrestling since the inception of the organization. In years past, Ned was president of the East Idaho chapter of the organization, before the Idaho association combined into one group. He participated in the very first Western Regional Kids/Cadet Championships when it was held in Gillette, Wyoming.  He has been at every Western Regional event since, pushing three decades of service. 

 

Back in 2010, Ned Zollinger was honored as The USA Wrestling's President Award, signifying Exceptional State Leadership.  Back then Ned said, "I am hoping I can bring something back to inspire, and help the people I work with, on the grassroots level."  Zollinger has certainly lived up to that statement and more!  Three years back, Girls Freestyle was added to the long running Junior Boys Duals, since that time, Middle-School, and Elementary School Duals were also include.  And this year for the very First time, Girls Greco was added.  "It's time," said Zollinger "It's the right time, A lot of very stellar careers will begin right here."
