Female UMaine Wrestler Wins National Title, BDN Reports
The Bangor Daily News and The Maine Edge published a University of Maine news release announcing first-year student Samantha Frank as a 2015 National Collegiate Women’s Wrestling Association champion. The 105-pound Frank pinned two-time All-American Mikayla Pica of Southwestern Oregon Community College to capture the crown this past weekend in Allen, Texas. Frank, a nursing major who also is on the UMaine cheering squad, was voted most outstanding wrestler at the meet and earned All-American status. While the Windham High School graduate was the sole female wrestler for the Black Bears, her win catapulted UMaine to a fifth-place finish in the 15-team field.
