Ottawa High School junior Darby Weidl became the first female wrestler in school history to qualify for the state tournament.


Weidl won the regional championship Saturday in Paola. Weidl takes a 30-1 mark into state, which is the best record in the 155-pound division.


The girls state tournament is Thursday in Salina.


Weidl, the top seed, received a bye in the first round. In the quarterfinal round, she will face the winner of Holli Giddings, MCHS (26-4), and Madison D’Urso, SHH (21-11).


She is in line to face Marissa Murray (22-1), WSH, in the semifinals.
