LAKE COUNTY, Calif. — Do you know what the fastest growing sport in the United States is?

If you guessed women’s wrestling then you are correct and it’s happening right here in Lake County! An all girls wrestling camp is coming to Clearlake Oct. 24 and 28 and is featuring one of Lake County’s most prestigious wrestlers.

Adriana Lopez of Upper Lake is running the camp and this is a huge opportunity for the girls in the community.

Lopez is the first state champion out of Lake County in any individual sport. She is giving back to her community by running the all girls camp.

“I’m super excited and happy to be able to give back to my community and do something I love,” Lopez said.

After high school, Lopez continued her wrestling career at Campbellsville University in Kentucky. There she was the Mid-South Conference Champion at 123 pounds, Mid-South Conference Freshman of the Year and First Team All Mid-South Conference.

Lopez will be bringing her extensive knowledge and experience back to Lake County.

“We are very fortunate to have Adriana on board to run this camp for our community,” said Coach Peter Stephan, who is the president of the Gladiator Wrestling Club. “As a wrestling community, we are trying to change the wrestling culture and putting Lake County wrestling on the map at the state level.”

The all-girls camp idea came about when Gladiator Wrestling met with the Lake County Sheriff's Activity League. Coach Peter along with Dr. Wayne Ogata met with the SAL Board that discussed bringing free opportunities for kids in the Clearlake Area.

There are plans to do many different activities and the first plan was to bring this All-girls Wrestling Camp to Clearlake.

The goal of the Lake County Sheriff's Activities League is to provide Lake County youth with exposure to a variety of positive leisure time activities.

For more information about Lake County Sheriff's Activities League check out the website at www.lakecountysal.com or the Lake County Sheriff's Activities Facebook page.

The camp will take place on Monday, Oct. 24, and Friday, Oct. 28, from 6 to 8 p.m. at Burns Valley Elementary, 3620 Pine St, Clearlake.

The camp is expecting over 50 girls from all around the county including kindergarten through high school girls.

Businesses from Lake County are also pitching in to make this camp happen as Barbecue By Biasotti, Next Home Yvette Sloan, and LAM Printing are sponsoring this event.

Tim Biasotti with Barbecue by Biasotti is also providing a special dinner for all the girls at the camp. “I am excited to help offset costs to provide a free camp for the female youth in the county and feed them”.
