Paityn Covolo and Jada Bohm Sign NLI’s For Women’s Wrestling At Iowa Western CC: Two Sheridan High School Girls Wrestlers have made history, by becoming the first to make their college decisions, where they will continue to compete in the sport they enjoy.

Paityn Covolo and Jada Bohm have both signed their National Letters of Intent (NLI) to wrestle at Iowa Western Community College.

Covolo is this year’s Wyoming State Champ at 135 pounds.

She started wrestling in 5th grade, but did not compete in her freshman and sophomore years in high school.

Povolo adds when the varsity wrestling program started at Sheridan HS, it re-lit her spark to compete, and although college wrestling is a different style than what she’s used to (freestyle vs. folkstyle), she’s willing to continue to compete.

Povolo adds she is considering majoring in criminal justice.

Bohm was the East Regional Runner-up and placed 6th at this year’s state wrestling meet at the 235 pound weight class.

She says she started competition in her junior year of high school and caught on quickly. 

Bohm adds she is considering majoring in business.

Iowa Western Community College is located in Council Bluffs, which is located on the other side of the Iowa-Nebraska border from Omaha.

The Lady Reiver wrestling program recently completed its third season of competition.
