IRVING, Texas – Four talented athlete repeated as champions at the Body Bar FILA Cadet Nationals on Saturday, winning best-of-three championship series in the finals.

Repeating as champions were Sariyah Jones of California at 46 kg, Gabrielle Garcia of California at 52 kg, Teshya Alo of Hawaii at 52 kg and Taylor Rosario of Texas at 78 kg.

In one of the most anticipated finals, Alo, a 2013 Cadet World bronze medalist, had to go three matches to defeat Maya Nelson of Colorado. Both Alo and Nelson were 2013 Junior National champions at different weight classes.

Nelson won the first bout, 9-4, but Alo rebounded with a pin in 2:55 to take bout two. In the deciding third match, Alo scored late in the final period to escape with a hard-fought 6-2 win. Alo was named Outstanding Wrestler for her victory.

Jones, also a 2013 U.S. FILA Cadet World Team member, also needed three matches to take the gold. Jones won the first match on a 3-3 criteria, but fell in bout two by a pin in 45 seconds. In the deciding third match, Jones won the criteria in a 1-1 tie to take the series.

Garcia and Rosario swept their championship series in two bouts. Garcia stopped fellow Californian Angelica Llanes in two technical falls, 10-0 and 11-0. Rosaria scored a pair of pins over fellow Texan Avery Sims in 0:20 and 1:03.

Garcia will return to the Cadet World Championships for the second straight year. Rosario competes in a weight division which is not included in the Cadet World Championsships

Champions in the nine World Championships weights earn a spot on the U.S. FILA Cadet World Team, which will compete in the FILA Cadet World Championships in Snina, Slovakia, July 15-20.

Three other series went the full three matches, and in all three of them, the athlete who lost the first match rallied to win the final two matches and take the championship series.

At 60 kg, Koral Sugiyama of Idaho lost the first match to 2013 FILA Cadet runner-up Arian Carpio of Washington, 4-8. She rallied with two technical falls, scoring numerous turns from the mat, winning bout two, 10-0 and bout three 14-4.

The champion at 65 kg was Katerina Lobsinger of California, who fell in round one to Jessika Rottier of Wisconsin, 11-6. Lobsinger turned on the offense the rest of the series, taking a pin in round two in 3:03 then taking the deciding third match, 12-6. Both were third at last year’s FILA Cadet Nationals in different weight classes.

The 84 kg title went to Emily Huerta of Washington, who came from behind to beat Bryanna Perkins of Texas. Perkins scored a 7-1 win in their first bout. Huerta came back with a pin in 1:02 and a 9-2 victory in bout three.
