Watertown junior Tessa Master made history Saturday, winning an All-State title and moving on to the New England Championships.

A week after winning the MIAA Div. 3 title in the 152 pound division, Master shut out her first two opponents in the All-State Meet and pinned Nadia Lebron of Salem in the final to take the title.

Through the season, Master wrestled mostly against boys as part of the Raiders’ wrestling squad. Against female opponents she went 7-2 in the regular season, and has won five matches in the State Tournament.

Master had not wrestled before getting to Watertown High School.

“When I was a freshman there was a senior peer leader in my home room and for orientation. She toured us around the school,” Master said in a recent interview. “Her name is Leah (Knipper-Davis). When I was a freshman she was the senior captain of the team. She just said this is the wrestling room. I said what season is that? She said winter. I said, I’m not doing anything in the winter, and here we are.”

Along with her state title, Master will be the first Watertown wrestler to compete at New Englands, which will take place on March 1 and 2 at Providence Career and Technical Academy.
