June 1, 2023 - Congratulations are in order for ten Hilhi Girls Wrestlers for qualifying to compete at Nationals on July 15 and 16 in Fargo, North Dakota! This is the first time ever this many girls have qualified from one school. Each of them had to place 4th or higher in a qualifying wrestling tournament to earn an invitation to the nationwide competition. To help cover expenses for the long journey – which they will take by train! – the team is holding a fundraising silent auction event from noon to 5 p.m. on Saturday, June 3 at Deep Space Brewing (6482 NE Jacobson St., Hillsboro).
Let’s go Hilhi Girls Wrestlers!
