Looking at Brawley Union High School's Erin Rutherford, the last thing you'd expect her to compete in is wrestling and weightlifting.
On Friday and Saturday that's exactly what she did, and she did so with success.
On Friday the 16-year-old sophomore competed in the Brawley wrestling team's 11th annual powder puff wrestling event, leading her team to a 38-15 victory. Rutherford was the only wrestler to compete in two matches, winning both.
She pinned Ami Aragon in the second period and later defeated Tanya Bonillas via a 4-2 decision.
"I wrestled last year, but this year I took it a lot more seriously and just worked harder for it," said Rutherford. "This year, though, they told me kind of at the last minute that I was going to wrestle twice. I really didn't know what to expect in that match because I hadn't seen (Bonillas) practice at all."
Rutherford said she used more of her mat skills to defeat Aragon but relied strictly on strength to down Bonillas.
