Allison Vazquez showed last year she was ready for the big stage, finishing fourth in the TSSAA state competition.
She'll have to earn her way back this Saturday at William Blount High School. Vazquez (10-2) will compete in the TSSAA East Regional Saturday, her stepping stone to back-to-back state tournaments.
"Allison has had a great season," said coach Matt Turner. "Win, lose or draw, she's already had a great year. I'm very excited to see how she finishes."
Vazquez is considered one of the top wrestlers in her class. Her only losses this season have come against returning state champions.
