While Kerr labors toward a day when colleges field women's wrestling teams and coaches can barge into their own bathrooms without knocking, his wrestlers have more immediate plans. Sitting in Kerr's office before practice, Schwarzberg sighs. "It's really hard," she says. "Sometimes you wonder what you're doing here. I can't tell you the number of times that I wanted to break down and cry. But I never did, because it seemed like we had a purpose."
Schwarzberg eyes the photos that line the walls. "Look at all these champions," she says. "When I look at these pictures, they just call out. I want my picture up there too."
