TULSA, Okla. – Top seed California Blue took 11-of-15 matches from Missouri in the championship match of the 2024 Air Force Special Warfare Junior National Duals to secure the women’s Greco-Roman national title.

Picking up pivotal pins for the Cali women in a 47-19 victory were Mia Navarro at 100 pounds, Eduarda Rodrigues at 155 pounds, Katianna Martinez at 190 pounds and Lorelei Hartman at 235 pounds.

Four Californians secured technical falls—Kailey Salazar at 105 pounds, Abbi Cooper at 110 pounds, Eden Hernandez at 115 pounds and Samantha Sachs at 130 pounds—bumping its bonus-point win total to eight.

Navarro, Salazar, Cooper and Hernandez punctuated the national title in style with a pin and three shutout technical falls in the final four bouts for California.


Janie Houser and Delarie Juarez earned decisions, while Maci Stemmons picked up a forfeit, to round out the list of California victories against Missouri.

Missouri jumped out to a 10-0 lead to start the dual with a pair of pins courtesy of Sydney Stifter at 120 pounds and Angelina Vargas at 125 pounds. Alana Thelin and Mya Hairston were the only other Missourians to get on the board, each scoring a shutout technical fall.

California Blue finished with a, 8-0 record on its way to first place. It had six wrestlers in its championship lineup go undefeated throughout the event—Cooper (8-0), Hernandez (8-0), Houser (5-0), Juarez (8-0), Rodrigues (8-0) and Martinez (5-0).

Finishing in third place was Texas Blue, who defeated Red River rival Oklahoma Blue in a two-point contest. Anna Vogt and Jacey Kuntz led the Lone Star State charge with pinning efforts in the placement dual.

Colorado topped Ohio Red in the fifth place dual with a 45-24 victory. Six Coloradans secured pins to push the dual out of reach—Katey Valdez at 100 pounds, Rylee Balcazar at 110 pounds, Lindsey Lopez at 115 pounds, Jaydin Cuevas at 120 pounds, Lexie Lopez at 125 pounds and Ciara Monger at 235 pounds.

Rounding out the Gold/Silver bracket results are Kansas and Michigan, who finished in seventh and eighth place overall. Kansas took the match by a 20-point margin with five pins on the books.
