Amanda Daigneau is a second year commissioner for wrestling. Amanda's love of wrestling began over 20 years ago, when her brother first started wrestling. That love grew even stronger when her son Gabriel began to wrestle. Amanda has been involved with wrestling off and on for over 20 years, with the last 8 being her most active. She was on Billings Wrestling Club's board for 3 years, as both Vice President and President. When Amanda is not helping with wrestling, she loves to spend time with family. Amanda has 4 children who are very active and keep her on her toes at all times. Amanda also loves to run and craft.

I have been involved in wrestling for 17 years. I am the MT AAU Secretary and MT Wrestling Head Pairer. My husband is the MT USAW President he also coaches for Darkhorse Wrestling Club. Both of our kids are also very involved in wrestling.
