*A female wrestler from which pioneering Virginia high school became the first female, statewide, ever to win a match in the VISWA state tournament?   Answer: Collegiate's  Sunny Clemons '97.

*Title IX (and how a lack of gender equity has forced our increasingly popular self defense-oriented sport to lose several hundred  official college teams).

*Considering the USA's record-high $9 trillion dollar national debt, which is straining law enforcement budgets nationwide like never before, would self defense-oriented sports (even at the mere exhibition level) not seem more potentially useful than ever to already diet-conscious women?   Doesn't traveling overseas (especially where handguns are outlawed), and at night here in the USA already involve enough inherent risks for ambitious & career-oriented folks?  Women's amateur wrestling is an Olympics sport now, and may become an NCAA and high school one at the rate it's growing.  Wouldn't that seemingly help our sport rebound from Title IX?
