The last two years, two of the state of Minnesota’s most decorated young wrestlers have flown under the radar. They are known to wrestling insiders, but unless you have paid close attention to some of the coverage they have gotten on The Guillotine website, the general wrestling public might not know about a pair of sisters who are making noise in the wrestling world. The Tuttle girls from North St. Paul have been making noise both locally and nationally, and they don’t appear to be stopping any time soon.
Included in Faith and Amor Tuttle’s accomplishments in the last two years are two Fargo All-American finishes apiece and two-straight girls’ high school state championships apiece. This season both also placed at the Women’s Folkstyle Nationals.
Amor, who is currently a sophomore, caught the wrestling bug first.
“I started in 6th grade,” Amor said. “I was just looking for an activity, and my dad said why don’t you come to wrestling practice and try it out? I got a couple of practices in, and I thought it was kind of cool. I just continued to keep going.”
Faith is a senior and started in with the sport a few years later.
