Catherine Mullis has set a record of being the first female at Baldwin High School to reach 100 wins.
MILLEDGEVILLE, Georgia (41 NBC/WMGT) – Captain and senior of the wrestling team Catherine Mullis has set a record. She is the first female at Baldwin High School to have reached 100 wins.
Her wrestling career began around five years when her father took her to wrestling classes.
Mullis says she was not at all thrilled with the idea, but after a while, she started liking the sport.
She says the journey hasn’t been easy.
“My first match I had no idea what was going on,” Mullis said. “I started wrestling over the summer, and over the summer, matches don’t count. So I had eight matches that summer, and I lost every single match.”
Mullis says she has so much more to prove.
Despite not being the most coordinated, she says she always pushes herself to improve.
“It’s really special for any wrestler to reach 100 wins, let alone a female wrestler, but I knew Catherine could do it,” her coach, Andrew Lindsay, said.
He has helped in guiding Catherine and says he was even able to bump her up a weight class, which is typically unheard of for female wrestlers.
As for her future plans, she says she plans on attending Life University and joining the wrestling team.
