Richards wrestler, Mia Palumbo has gained some respect on the mats. Palumbo is the first female wrestler to get a win at State.

 

She finished in the top eighth of the bracket with a phenomenal record of 2-2, which not many wrestlers could do.

 

With a tough loss in quarterfinals versus a senior from East St. Louis, Palumbo did not get discouraged. “I just have to keep my head up,” said Palumbo.

 

Palumbo is also a great influence to all other girls who want to join wrestling in the future. “You’ve just got to go out and battle each match,” said Palumbo.

 

“It is only Mia’s freshmen year here at Richards and she’s only going to get better,” said JV wrestler Joe Campbell.

 

For only one week, anyone can vote for Mia Palumbo to be Country Financial Athlete of the Month for the month of March. To vote, go to chicagotribune.com/athletes.
