Juniors Piper Windler and Cadence Kerr sell baked goods such as cake pops and pumpkin bread with the help of their teammates.

The girls wrestling team held a bake sale to raise money for their team this year. The team ran the bake sale before and after school in front of the main entrance from Monday, Nov. 6 to Friday, Nov. 17 selling items such as brownies, cookies, muffins and cake pops. 

Many teams fundraise for different items they might need over the course of their season. With the girls wrestling team being fairly new, they need lots of new items this year, sophomore Finley Rose explained. 

“We need new singlets and new warm ups and we are also going out of town so we needed a lot [more] money,” Rose said. 

Generally, to raise money, the wrestling teams send out a link and family and friends donate money. However, according to senior Nathalie Gutierrez team thought it would be better to have face-to-face interaction with students. 

We wanted to do [this] to bring awareness to the team because a lot of people don’t really know what girls wrestling is.

“We thought “what if we do a more effective way where people actually get something back in return” so we decided to do the bake sale,” Gutierrez said.  

The team hopes the sale will make more money than previous fundraising attempts and will help raise awareness for the team, junior Raina Frantz said. 

“We wanted to do [this] to bring awareness to the team because a lot of people don’t really know what girls wrestling is,” Frantz said. 

The team has received positive reactions from students and they have made close to $700 to help the team. Rose believes the bake sale has really helped inform people about the team.

“We’ve had a lot of people come up and be like “Oh, what is this for?” and they don’t even know that we have a [girls] wrestling team,” Rose said.

Frantz said that making the items for the bake sake as a team was an added benefit.

“It was also team bonding, making all this stuff together,” Frantz said. 

Gutierrez said the returning wrestlers have also used the time making these sweet treats to get to know some of the new girls. 

“Actually having an interaction with the new girls and getting to meet them [was fun],” Gutierrez said.

In the future, the girls wrestling team plans to do a fundraiser selling $20 coupons for Glory Days Pizza to continue raising money for supplies.
