MANASSAS, Feb. 24 — Page County High School sophomore Mackenzie Painter recently made history when she earned All-State honors with a fifth-place finish at the first-ever VHSL Girls Open State Wrestling Tournament on Feb. 24 at Unity Reed High School in Manassas.
Painter became the first female to ever earn All-State honors in wrestling at PCHS, while competing in the inaugural Girls State Open. The highly competitive event featured all six classifications in VHSL together broken down into 11 weight classes. Painter went 2-for-2 for the tournament, earning a fifth-place medal and All-State status at the 225-pound weight class.
“For Mackenzie Painter to come out, and get two big pins and to earn herself a 5th place medal, and earning all-state honors, in the first-ever VHSL Girls Open State Wrestling Tournament, was awesome to see,” PCHS head wrestling coach Greg Martin said.
