The room was packed as we waited for Thursday’s Eudora USD 491 Board of Education meeting to begin.

The surrounding wrestling community and others were there to show their support for members of the Eudora Girls Wrestling Community who spoke out during the public attendance.

Baldwin, Edgerton, Washburn Rural, Shawnee Heights, Silver Lake, Free State, Lawrence, Paola, Oleis and Wellsville all welcomed coaches or players to the standings-only conference.

The civic engagement comment was in response to the board’s decision in July to follow Superintendent Stu Moeckel’s recommendation to hire an assistant coach for the wrestling program while the girls want to build their own teams.

The district has hosted women’s professional wrestling in the past and has recently become a KSHSAA official sport.
