Dyan Page, a sophomore at Dominion High School, placed first in her weight division at the 2018 All Girls Wrestling State Championship. After not placing in the tournament as a freshman, Page returned this winter to claim the 145-pound championship.

"Wrestling has always run through the family," Page said. "I have two older brothers who wrestled and my dad is my coach at Dominion."

Dyan's father, Sean Page, is a volunteer coach at Dominion. The first female wrestler at Dominion, Dyan Page concluded her sophomore season with a 10-3 record.

Page was one of more than 60 competitors at this year's All Girls Wrestling State Championship, contested in late January.

"It was emotional for me," Page said. "All of the hard work and progress that I made from last year to this year showed."

Between her freshman and sophomore seasons, Page trained with Dan Scanlan at Scanlan Wrestling Academy in Sterling. Scanlan was a two-time state champion at Loudoun County High School.

"I was really excited to win because I had been working very hard over the past year and during the offseason with Dan so I was proud of all of the hard work I’ve put in," Page said. "I felt a lot of love and support from everyone around me when I won."

Page plans to continue wrestling while also making time to play lacrosse this spring for Dominion.

"I’m looking toward pursuing wrestling in college, it’s definitely something that I am considering," Page said. "It all depends on the school I go to and whether it offers wrestling or not."
