This is Jaxon's fifth straight state wrestling tournament appearance. He says this trip means a little more with is sister competing with him, something they haven't done since their youth wrestling days.

We haven't done something like this in a while, so it brings back a lot of good memories.

This is Camryn's first state tournament appearance, after the Minnesota State High School League create a girl's state wrestling tournament last year.

She says it was that tournament that inspired her to get back on the mat.

I saw they had a girls state tournament last year and thought I should give wrestling another try. Hopefully I'm able to go down there and win a state title, but if not, just placing would be awesome too.

Both Jaxson and Camryn say having a girl's state tournament is a great addition to the sport and they hope this inspires more girls to join their high school wrestling teams.

Jaxson will begin his chance for a state title Friday, while Camryn competes on Saturday.
