PISCATAWAY, NJ – Jane Rodrigues, 10 won her third consecutive state title on Saturday at the New Jersey State Girls Wrestling Championship in Trenton.
Rodrigues, a fifth grade Piscataway student who wrestles at 54 pounds has been wrestling for the Piscataway Recreation team and Team New Jersey, competing against all-star teams from other states, said her coach, Pat Morgan.
She recently came in third place in the Mid Jersey Wrestling League competition for the Piscataway Recreation team, he said.
Morgan said Rodrigues joins two other girls on recreation team, Megan Caputo and Madison Glasco, competing against both boys and girls.
“This year NJSIAA approved a girls wrestling division on the high school level and the sport is growing rapidly for girls,” he said. “We are happy to have our three girls and hope to add a lot more next season and get to the point where we have separate girls squads.”
