In addition to being the official score keepers for the wrestling team, our Wrestlerettes keep and maintain stats on every wrestler in the program, video matches for use by the coaches and the wrestlers, and track and inventory equipment and uniforms. Our Wrestlerettes travel with the team to local and out of state tournaments and set up and organize all home tournaments and matches. The Harrison HS Wrestlerettes also generate an amazing amount of enthusiasm and team spirit by creating the match posters, bulletin boards, and banners seen throughout the school.
