Jill B., a 2016 AHS graduate, signed a letter of intent to wrestle for MacMurray College in Jacksonville, Illinois. It has been eight years since the last AHS female earned a wrestling scholarship. As a captain, she helped lead the team to district and regional championships.
“I’m super excited. I can’t wait to go up there. This is a great opportunity for me to reach my ultimate goal. I think more Free-Style Wrestling experience will help me be a better coach. As far as my trip to Fargo, I initially had a mental breakdown because I didn’t think I belonged there. Coach Provence encouraged me to go to Fargo and pick Coach Allen’s brain on how to organize and coach a team. I’m glad I went because while I was there, I had many colleges talk to me about wrestling for them. I choose MacMurray because the coach’s philosophy was similar to the coaching philosophy I was exposed to in high school.” -Jillford B.
