2019 Folkstyle Nationals All-American: Elora Waterman
In her 1st year of wrestling competition, Elora Waterman has earned All-American Status at the 2019 Girls US Marine Corps Folkstyle Nationals in Oklahoma City, OK.
Just a week after placing 5th in the 1st ever GHSA Girls State Championships in the 95 lbs. Weight Class, Elora competed for the Team Georgia National Team Qualifier.
Waterman would finish Runner-Up in the 100 lbs. Weight Class, good enough to earn her an invitation to join the 2019 Team Georgia Girls National Duals Team! Elora trained for a few more weeks, then traveled to Oklahoma City to participate in the USMC Girls Folkstyle National Duals Championship. The Team Georgia Girls National Duals Team would finish 8th as a team!
Being selected to represent Cartersville High School, the GHSA, and Team Georgia at a National Duals Tournament is quite an honor, but since she was making the trip out to Oklahoma City as part of the Duals Team, Elora decided to compete in the Individual Folkstyle National Championships as well. She competed in the 16-Under 94 lbs. weight class and after losing her first match to the eventual National Champion, Elora would fight back to 8th place in the consolation bracket to earn her All-American Status!!!
