Leyna Rumpler To Compete For PA Junior & 16U Women’s National Team
North Allegheny incoming sophomore Leyna Rumpler is one of 21 wrestlers named to the Pennsylvania 16U Women’s National Team. Rumpler will anchor the 144-pound weight class at the 2021 U16 and Junior Nationals. The national event will be held in Fargo, North Dakota on July 12-23.
In 2020-21, Rumpler was one of the core members of North Allegheny’s inaugural girls’ varsity wrestling team. In an historic year at NA, Rumpler earned a critical win by fall on Saturday, Feb. 6, to help the Tigers claim a 12-11 victory over Central Mountain. It was the first ever scored girls dual meet in school and state history. Rumpler’s pin fall against Rhiannon McCracken will serve a lasting memory from the event in what was a season of firsts for the North Allegheny girls’ wrestling team.
Good luck to Leyna Rumpler and the entire PA National Team in Fargo, ND.
