Megan Black holds a place in the state record books as the first girl to win a contested match at the Iowa High School Wrestling Tournament. She won Thursday, but lost her second-round match on Friday.
The junior from Eddyville-Blakesburg defeated Jacob Schmit of Don Bosco 10-0 at 106 pounds Thursday, then lost Friday to Taylor Curtis from Underwood. She'll continue to wrestle in the consolation bracket. She said her goal was to earn a spot on the medal stand at the tournament.
Black is actually the second girl to win a match at the tournament. Last year, Cassy Herkelman garnered national headlines when she won because her opponent refused to wrestle her.
