After months of training, discipline, and hard work on the mat, sophomore Kymberly Jackson entered the Curtis Culwell Center in Garland for the UIL State Wrestling Meet. Kym had already excelled at the district, city, and regional wrestling meets and she went into the meet determined to make history.
She celebrated several victories on the mat at the state meet, but none were as sweet as when she clenched the State title on Saturday night. Kymberly is Dallas ISD's, and North Dallas', first female wrestling state champion. Kym's title is for District 215 5A.
Kymberly was coached by Courtney Billingsley and Kristi Ulibarri, as well as CJ Johnson. The North Dallas community is joined by all of Dallas ISD in celebrating the incredible accomplishments of this young lady.
