Trailblazing Ballston Spa High School Girls State Wrestling Champion

Senator Jim Tedisco (R,C-Ballston Lake) and Assemblywoman Mary Beth Walsh (R,C-Ballston) today honored at the state Capitol, Mia Collins, a trailblazing girls wrestling state champion from Ballston Spa High School.

Mia Collins, a junior at Ballston Spa High School, 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 Syracuse on Friday, January 26 of this year.

Tedisco and Walsh presented Collins with a copy of a NYS legislative resolution they authored and passed in both the Senate and Assembly, honoring her championship season.

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, along with being 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, and though only a junior; she finished third at the Fargo Nationals in North Dakota.
