(ST. JOSEPH) — Brooke-Lynn Rush capped off an incredible high school wrestling career by signing her letter of intent to wrestle at Missouri Valley College, Wednesday afternoon.

Rush won the inaugural MSHSAA Girl's Wrestling championship at the 152-lbs. weight class in 2019. The nationally ranked wrestler led the way for girl's wrestling in the city of St. Joseph. 

Rush joins a well-renowned women's wrestling program in Missouri Valley College.

"They've had a program for 20 years and they have a lot of tough girls and they've had a lot of achievements," Rush said. "They've done a lot in the past 20 years and I feel like it's a perfect fit for me."

Rush plans to study sociology and psychology to pursue becoming an FBI agent in the future.

For Tuesday, more rain is forecast to move in and could bring a few inches of heavy rainfall to the area, which is certainly not needed. A Flash Flood Watch is in effect for the area. There is also the threat for strong to severe thunderstorms early Tuesday afternoon. We'll be watching it.
