My first wrestling state championship

For The Madera Tribune

Dahlia Benitez of the Toros Wrestling Club holds her 103-pound State Championship trophy after winning the title in March.


I am 11-years-old, and I am a State Champion Wrestler for the Toros wrestling club in Madera. 

In 2019, I lived in Sylmar, and was was 7-years-old when my older sister introduced me to school wrestling. 

Due to the pandemic, I had to stop wrestling because schools shut down.
