The wrestler has big goals ahead of leaving Golden Tornado
BUTLER TWP — By the time a full women’s varsity wrestling team is established at Butler High School, Ana Malovich will likely graduate.
But she’ll be a big reason he’s there.
“Absolutely. Positively,” Butler’s wrestling coach Scott Stoner said. “Ana is a trailblazer in this sport. Her accomplishments have been noticed by so many other young girls who might be interested in trying wrestling.
Ana’s accomplishments are far from over.
She competed in USA Wrestling’s National 16U Women’s Freestyle Tournament and Junior Women’s National Championships last week in Fargo, ND. There were just under 1,000 entries, making it the biggest women’s wrestling event in history.
Ana placed fifth at the 16U Nationals last year. She was fourth there this year, her only two losses coming by decisions of 12-10 and 7-4.
