Condit Elementary School second grader Nina Shelger (pictured) won the Texas state wrestling championship in both the girls G1 and boys D1 heavyweight divisions. She competed in four matches and won each of them by pin in the first period. The weekend competition was held at the Reed Arena in College Station and included more than 1,000 wrestlers from all around Texas. Nina began competing when she was 5 years old. She is trained by her dad, Reed Shelger, and also works with strength-and-conditioning coach Brelynn McNary at Paradigm Wrestling Club.
