Veronica is a freshman and has been wrestling for about three years. She wrestled during Junior High, and this is her first year wrestling at the High School level. “At the beginning of the season, I would have never dreamt of making it to state. It was nerve-wracking but thrilling at the same time.” Veronica placed sixth at the meet, making her the first Lady Bluejay to place at state.  Veronica made history with her placement and is paving the way for future girls to get into wrestling.  Greene realizes how much more she will learn and how much better she will be, and that’s fueling her for next season.
