DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — It’s a historic day in Dothan as an athlete signed to wrestle in college for the first time in the city’s history.

Tristin Robinson of Northside Methodist Academy will soon join the Huntingdon Hawks wrestling program.

Robinson started wrestling three years ago when the program first started at NMA.

Since then she’s amassed a 62-28 record.

Her senior year she went 26-8 and came in third in the 145 pound weight class at the state tournament.

The future Hawk has become a passionate advocate for the sport and hopes to see it grow in the Wiregrass and statewide.

During the recruitment process she looked into several schools,, but she felt like God was calling her to Huntingdon.

She believes she can have the biggest impact on growing her sport by joining the Hawks program.

Robinson is proud of herself, but says this is only the beginning.

“Everything that I do is pushing, I’m pushing myself every day to try and accomplish my goals and this was one of my goals,” Robinson said. “Of course now I’m onto the next thing. I’m going to have more goals after this.”

Robinson invited her entire school to her signing today to give her sport as a big a platform as she could.
