The Boulder Creek High School has continued to be a very successful wrestling program over the years. For the first time ever, female wrestler Sierra Chapman makes the BCHS wrestling team. In the team picture she kneels in the foreground surrounded by a program of all male wrestlers. Congratulations Sierra!
Sierra is currently training for the upcoming Junior/Cadet National Wrestling Tournament in San Diego, CA. this coming July. [July 12 - 19] She will have the chance to represent the Arizona/USA Wrestling organization, a non-profit 5013C organization.
We would like to wish Sierra all the best of luck and I am reaching out to small business owners and members of the community who are able to help contribute to her financial assistance to cover her own expenses. (2-week training camp, travel, entry fee, room, and equipment for the national tournament), which is a cost of $1,200.
If you are able to donate, this can also be a tax deduction #86-0789638. Please send us an email and we will put you touch with Sierra's mom, Torre who is a valuable member of the community.
Torre stated, "A Huge Shout-Out to the coaches for allowing her to wrestle in their room and help her grow this year! Dent, Wilbanks, Moore, Muncie, and Crooks. Of course to all the boys that had to wrestle a girl too :)."
In May she is competing in Irving, Texas at the Woman's World Trials as well. Sierra's long-term wrestling goal is to make the Olympics wrestling to compete in 2024. So let's be a BIG part of her transition!
Sierra wrestled on the Girls High School Varsity team for 2 years in Washington her freshman and sophomore year. She is a member of the first all-girls wrestling team at her high school in Everett, WA. Both years she made it on the All Wesco teams for highest score and Coaches Choice. She is a 3x State qualifier both in WA and AZ this year. She has never placed in State though. This year coming to AZ she is the first and only female wrestler on the high school varsity team. She only competes with other female wrestlers at tournaments. She weighed in at 150-155 most of the season and wrestled in the 164-185 classes. Taking first place in all but 2 tournaments. She placed 2nd at sections. Her win/loss record was 13-3 for the season.
She competed in the National qualifier last weekend at Red Mountain and she placed 2nd. Now she qualifies to compete in Fargo at the National Championship.
Meagan Papineau is a graduate of Boulder Creek High School where she was highly involved on the Student Council, as well as working with several businesses in the community. She is a now a medical student at NAU and becoming a health care provider is her dream. Meagan has been given an amazing opportunity to go to Honduras for a medical brigade with the NAU chapter of Global Brigades. Honduras is an under resourced country in Central America that has limited to no access to health care. During the week in Honduras, we will be providing basic preventative medical care, prescriptions for people with disease, and working to make the community a healthier and cleaner environment. For every 1 volunteer, 55 patients are able to be seen by a doctor and for every $63 dollars that I raise, 1 patient is able to see a physician and dentist. I am thankful for any support I receive as well as the opportunity to help others receive basic medical care that we often take for granted. Thank you!
These are the stories that inspire other people to give back to people who want to pay it forward. Helping people in need of health care is one of her passions and is what she would like to focus her future on. She needs any financial support she can get so any fundraising support would be great.
