Merrill Native Hill Earns All-American Status on Mats

(WAOW) - Patricia Hill (USOEC-Marquette, MI) placed 6th at the ASICS University National Wrestling Championships last weekend.  The event is a qualifier for the World Teams Trials and was held at the Stiles Field House, University of Akron.  Hill, a 2-time high school All-American, earned University All-American by placing in the top eight. She did not compete at the national event last year due to an injury.  The 48kg (105.5lbs) wrestler will be heading to Cleveland, Ohio later in the month for the US Open National Championships.

She toured Europe again this last December training and competing in Prague, Zurich, Amsterdam and Munich.  Hill is a pre-med sophomore at Northern Michigan University and will be starting her sixth year in the US Olympic wrestling scholarship program this July.  She is the 20 year old daughter of Dean and Charmaine Hill, Merrill.
