Year Inducted

The sport of girls’ wrestling has received a lot of well-deserved attention in the past few years as more girls get involved and more schools field teams. 2024 Chautauqua Sports Hall of Fame inductee Carlene Sluberski was a trail blazing pioneer in the sport of women’s wrestling in this county.

Sluberski, born in 1991, first took up the sport as a fifth grader. She wrestled in middle school and then four years at the varsity level for Fredonia Central School under the mentorship of CSHOF inductee Alex Conti.

Her record as a freshman was 6-4; as a sophomore 24-17; as a junior 36-10; and as a senior 50-5. Her overall career high school wrestling record was 116-36, with 44 pins, against male competition.

Sluberski was the Section VI Champion at 96 pounds in 2008. She achieved fame when she became the first girl in NYSPHSAA boys wrestling to reach the state finals in 2009. She finished second after suffering a broken finger in the final match at 96 pounds.
