BELFAIR — Girls from Granger, Sunnyside and Toppenish brought home dozens of medals Sunday from the all-female Battle of the Bling wrestling tournament at North Mason High School.

The event was the second of three in Washington state’s inaugural all-woman wrestling series.

The tournament included all three wrestling styles – folkstyle, freestyle and Greco-Roman.

The Toppenish girls finished ninth overall in folkstyle, seventh in freestyle and third in Greco-Roman.

Victory Wrestling Club of Granger finished 16th overall in folkstyle, 19th in freestyle and seventh in Greco.

Sunnyside didn’t field a sanctioned team, so local girls winning medals didn’t ea

rn any team points.

The event opened Saturday night with a clinic on all three wrestling styles offered by the All-Navy Wrestling Team. Wrestling took place Sunday.
