ALBANY — State Senator Jim Tedisco and Assemblywoman Mary Beth Walsh celebrated Mia Collins, a girls wrestling state champion from Ballston Spa High School, earlier this week at the State Capitol in Albany. Collins was presented with a copy of a legislative resolution that honored her championship season.

Collins, a junior, captured the 2024 New York State Public High School Athletic Association Girls Wrestling Championship title in the 132-pound Division over top-seeded Alexa Doxey of Newfane High School at the Syracuse Research Corporation Arena and Events Center in January.

Prior to the final match, Mia recorded a 38-second pin in her first match; a reversal with 17 seconds remaining to win a 6-4 decision in her quarterfinal bout, and then put together a second-period pin in the semifinals.

Mia’s victory capped off an undefeated regular season record of 10-0. She was the first New York State Girls Wrestling Champion from Ballston Spa High School.

In light of her recent accomplishments, Mia Collins has garnered a National ranking of eighth in her weight class.
