ROCKLIN, Calif. – It was another banner day for the #4 Menlo College Women's Wrestling team on Saturday in Rocklin as the Oaks topped a field of 17 teams to take home first place as a team. A remarkable 16 individuals placed in their respective weight classes while three individuals took home top individual honors. The Oaks finished first followed by Emmanuel College and #2 Simon Fraser.

Hiba Salem, Solin Piearcy and Precious Bell were the three Oaks who took home first place honors in their weight classes on Saturday afternoon in Rocklin. Salem was methodical and efficient in her path to a title on Saturday, winning all three of her matches, two via tech fall. Salem first defeated Cecilia Saavedra 11-0 then defeated Nina Pham 10-7. In the third round, Salem did no surrender a point, defeating Iesha Washington 10-0 to secure the tournament title.

Solin Piearcy used a similar path to first place at 136 pounds, using three perfect 10-0 tech falls and a 10-1 decision to go a perfect 4-0. She began the day with a 10-0 win over Regina Dickinson of Warner Pacific then defeated Serena Morales of Gray Harbor College 10-0. In the semifinals, Piearcy won 10-0 over Astrid Silva of Emmanuel College to advance to the championship match. In the final match, Piearcy gave up her first and only point of the day in a 10-1 win over Jenna Garcia.

Menlo's third champion on the day was Precious Bell at 191 pounds. The weight class was jam-packed with Oaks, with four different Menlo wrestlers competing. Bell took first place with Solove Naufahu placing third and Vanessa Dixon placing fifth. Bell received a first round bye then won by pin over Haylee Modoy of Adrian College in just 27 seconds. She pinned teammate Vanessa Dixon in 1:21 in the semifinals to advance to the finals where she met up with Tristyn Borden of Southern Oregon. She again won via pin, this time in 1:12 seconds to earn first in the 191 pound weight class.
