Kylie Rule Wins First Girls’ State Wrestling Championship

January 29, 2022
Friday night the Mineral Point wrestling supporters cheered off Kylie Rule as she made her way to La Crosse, for the first high school girls’ state wrestling tournament. Rule has had large opportunities in her high school career. She has taken huge trips to different countries to wrestle off some of the best competition. She also has the opportunity to practice with many different coaches and people, this can make it easy for her to learn new skills fast. Rule did not have to qualify for this tournament, and nobody had a doubt that she would succeed. There has been so much work put into wrestling by Rule. On Saturday, Rule started with two byes. Up first was Vanessa Skildum, from Beloit Turner, to take on Rule. A full section of boys from the MP wrestling team were there cheering for Rule during her first match. The whole building was filled with noise from that one section. Rule swept the match away with a pin! She definitely made a statement right at the start. After that, Rule faced Aevri Ciha from Cambridge. Rule had a great match coming to the end with a score of 7 – 1. Kylie Rule was headed to the first-ever WIAA Girls State Championship, taking on Madalyn Sokolski from Bonuel! Rule came onto the mat knowing that she had this in her pocket. The Mineral Point section roared with excitement as Kylie Rule became our newest state champion with a win of 9-0. Mineral Point cheered and cheered as Rule walked off the mat. The town celebrated with Rule when she came home late Saturday night!
