    Girls should not wrestle boys on an official school-sanctioned wrestling team........for obvious reasons.

    Not because they might get hurt, but because ....... well, for obvious reasons. Have you seen high school wrestling matches?

    They are quite intimate.

    Girls should be allowed to play on girl's wrestling teams and they should be afforded a team if they desire one.

    No, for obvious reasons.

    One non-obvious reason: Too many women carry rolling pins. Shoot...the BB's dangerous enough. It's a regular Ronco Kitchen in here!

    I think girls should be able to play any sport they want, it's activity and we're short on that in this country, but for wrestling they need a girls team, too much up close and personal in wrestling. And if theres enough girls in a school wanting to wrestle then why not have a girls team.
