Perez, Ramos head to nationals: UHS wrestlers aim to qualify for world team

 
In February, Uvalde High School freshman Adelyhda Perez won the state title in wrestling, defeating the former two-time champion. Her teammate, sophomore Larisa Ramos, earned third place. Now, the two girls are on their way to nationals to compete for the chance to qualify for the world team.
 
To raise money to help cover the cost of the trip, the Uvalde Wrestling Club held a prize drawing for a television with a Blu-ray player. They raised approximately $1,200.
 
Adelyhda has been wrestling since she was just 4 years old. Her father, John Perez, is also a former wrestler. He began coaching Adelyhda, helping her secure three titles by the time she was nine.
 
Ramos, on the other hand, began wrestling last November at the request of her coaches.
