CORALVILLE, IA– Jennifer Page of the Titan Mercury WC repeated as Senior National champion and Maya Nelson of the Sunkist Kids was named Outstanding Wrestler in the women’s freestyle division on Friday night.

Page won a three-athlete round-robin at 65 kg, winning both of her matches by 10-0 technical falls.

Nelson won a four-athlete round-robin at 59 kg, beating three very tough opponents by sizable margins. Nelson dropped down a weight class from her Olympic year weight and dominated. She defeated both of last year’s 57 kg Senior National finalists, Lauren Louive and Xochitl Mota-Pettis.

The top five place winners in each weight class earned a spot in the 2021 World Team Trials in September.

More notably, the three champions at the non-Olympic weights earned their spot on the 2021 Pan-American Championship team– Maya Nelson (59), Jennifer Page (65) and Alex Glaude (72). The final Pan-Am spot will be filled by runner-up Amy Fearnside since today’s champion, Jacarra Winchester, is the Olympic Trials champion at 53 kg and is already on the Pan American team.

The pandemic has made training and life difficult for everyone. Even more difficult, some programs cancelled their seasons and training entirely. Current Menlo star Gracie Figueroa and former Menlo star Solin Piearcy both claimed her first Senior Nationals titles, although their training was difficult.

The 76 kg finals match emphasized the wrestling mindset of taking it one takedown at a time. Dymond Guilford and Precious Bell have met many times before today. Bell was leading the match 5-0, but Guilford pancaked Bell to her back in the second period and claimed the fall and the national title.

Other individual champions were Erin Golston of the New York AC at 50 kg, Alex Hedrick of Titan Mercury WC at 53 kg and Vayle Baker of the Twin Cities RTC at 57 kg. Golston and Hedrick have previously won Senior National titles, while Baker was a first-time winner.

Titan Mercury took home the women’s team trophy this with 64 points. Twin Cities RTC claimed runner-up with 39 points.

Tomorrow’s action will continue at 10a CT live on FloWrestling, with men’s freestyle at the Senior and UWW Junior levels. You can continue to follow the brackets on FloArena.
