Aliana Lefotu comes from a family of female wrestlers that have achieved much success at Golden Valley High School as sisters Avea (Class of 2017) and Arnae (Class of 2015) left their mark as Lady Bulldog legends.
“I am extremely grateful,” states the younger Aliana, “That I have come from a great line of tough girl wrestlers.”
Aliana has wrestled for 5 years, two years with the Top Dog Wrestling feeder program and the rest as a high school student at Golden Valley. As a sophomore, Aliana exploded onto the girls’ wrestling scene in Kern County as she accumulated a 42-12 record with 35 pins and a 2-2 record at the CIF State Tournament while wrestling at 131 pounds.
This year, Aliana has increased her intensity and focus, hoping to make a deep run at the CIF State Tournament. “I love competing against others,” indicates Aliana, “Competition fuels me to be great.”
Wrestling at 137 pounds, Aliana has already accumulated a 26-4 record with top three finishes in some of the toughest tournaments: Last Girls Standing (1st) Queen of the Valley (1st) Queen of the Hill (3rd) and Napa Valley Girl Classic (3rd). Aliana is currently ranked #1 in the CIF Central Section and #8 in the State at 137 pounds.
