Alize Ramirez (left) and Ariana Flores are the first two girls at Evanston High School to compete in the state wrestling tournament. They compete this weekend in Bloomington in the finals after a season with nine others on Evanston’s first girls team. “Wrestling gives you a lot of confidence and a lot of strength,” said Ramirez, a senior. Flores, a junior, wrestled on the boys team during her first two years. They share the wrestling room with boys. “They are very supportive,” said Ariana. “They are cheerleaders.” Credit: Richard Cahan
