Dearwester certainly deserves the honor as she won 32-1 as a freshman and won the OHSWCA Girls State Championship with £ 106.
This made her the first girl wrestling state champion in the history of Harrison High School and Cincinnati. At the State Finals, Dearwester went 4-0 and won every match by pinfall. Her total time on the mat was 3:15.
Dearwester beat Olivia Messerly (Ryle) and Lizbeth Banderas-Rodriguez (Norwood) to win the Wrestler of the Year award.
The announcement was made by Kyle Snyder, the youngest wrestler to win world, NCAA and Olympic championships that same year.
Dearwester, the daughter of former All-American Rob Dearwester, might be on her way to bigger things in the future. She ranks sixth nationwide in the 106-pound weight class, according to USA Wrestling.
