  • 2020-21 – Sidney Sullens – White Co JR

Sullens is the first-ever Girls Wrestler of the Year award.

WHO WILL WIN IT NEXT YEAR?

With Sullens back for an encore next season, the award is hers to lose. With Malek and Harrington both graduating, it appears a pretty easy road unless another local girl really makes some big-time noise next season.
