We saw the Arkansas state wrestling championship in Little Rock over the weekend and saw a girl from Episcopal who was just plain tough. She whipped more than a couple of boys and placed in her weight class (fifth or sixth, I can't remember).

The interesting thing was everyone seemed to be rooting for her.
