MARSHALL, Mo. — The McPherson High girls wrestling team has returned from the five-day Missouri Valley camp.

According to MHS coach Doug Kretzer, this is an intensive technique camp with a focus on freestyle wrestling, which is the format used at the collegiate level.

“This is interesting because the freestyle college format is designed to align our United States women with the same style wrestled in the Olympics,” Kretzer said.  

Kretzer is pleased so many of the girls are training hard this summer in preparation for the upcoming season.
