Posted:

WAVERLY (KWWL) -- Cedar Falls wrestler Cassy Herkelman defeated Marion's Scout Morehouse 6-2 to advance to next week's state wrestling meet.  In doing so, Herkelman became the first girl to ever qualify for the state meet.

The Tiger freshman came into Saturday's regional meet seeded 4th, but after falling in the first round, Herkelman pinned Cody Hensel of Cedar Rapids Jefferson in the second period advancing to the wrestlebacks.  Hensel had beaten her 2 previous times in the season.

Megan Black of Ottumwa also qualified for the state meet.  She and Herkelman both wrestle at 112 pounds.
