Brandy says "Goodbye to her hair!"
The end of July and Beginning of August, Coach Brandy Green held her first annual "5 Point Wrestling Camp" at High Point Academy. The camp named after the highest point value in wrestling inspired Coach Green to challenge the girls. "If EVERYONE completes a successful back arch throw, Then ..." so the challenge was excepted. Now, it did take a team effort. Some girls were more hesitant than others; but together they got the job done by either throwing another camper or a throwing dummy. Everyone from 18 year old Brooke Richards down to 6 year old Jackie Welch completed the task. To make a long story short Brandy is donating 12 inches of her long blonde hair to "Wigs 4 Kids" (http://www.wigs4kids.org) an organization that makes and donates wigs to children who are loosing hair due to illness like cancer.
