Naomi Simon from Decorah, Iowa signed a National Letter of Intent on Wednesday to compete at the University of Iowa. Simon is an elite recruit that is a late add on to a very good Iowa Women’s Wrestling Recruiting Class of 2024.

In the National Girls High School Preseason Rankings Simon is #2 at 170.

Simon is a three-time state champion at Decorah. She won a state title at 170 last season with a 37-0 record and has an 82-0 career record. 

Simon has had a lot of success nationally. Last summer Simon won a Junior National title at 164 lbs. Recently Simon won the 170 lbs. title at the USA Wrestling Preseason Nationals. In September Simon won by a first period pin at Who’s Number 1.

While doing research I found a good article that mentioned how former Iowa NCAA champion and four-time All American Lee Fullhart was influential in getting Simon to go out for wrestling at Decorah as a freshman.

Iowa keeps adding to a loaded program that looks to have a great future.
