Cut Bank sophomore JJ Carter works for the pin against Kayden York of Miles City last week at the Shepherd Mixer.

The Cut Bank Lady Wolves wrestling squad made history last week as they not only competed in the first Montana High School Association sanctioned all-female mixer in Shepherd, but the three grapplers went undefeated on the day. 

Mariah Wahl, JJ Carter and Haylee Fetters all went 2-0 in Shepherd winning all of their matches by pin. 

“This was an exciting opportunity for the Lady Wolves to see where they stack up against only girls,” said head coach Cody Fetters. “Mariah has had a few opportunities to grapple with girls but JJ and Haylee have only had male opponents. It was a great confidence booster to our novice female wrestlers, JJ and Haylee.”

“It was wonderful to see the excitement in their eyes after each win,” said volunteer coach Chantry Wahl. “I think it gave them a new love for the sport.”
