IOWA CITY– In total, 15 athletes went undefeated in this morning’s Senior Women’s session; all but the 76 kg weight class are in round robins.

The top-five placers in each weight class will qualify for the World Team Trials in September; note that most of the weight classes for the Senior women have five or less participants. The champions today at the non-Olympic/World weight classes are competing for a spot on the 2021 Pan-Am Championship team.

Jacarra Winchester (TMWC) is the only Olympian/World champion entered in the Senior Women’s National tournament. With two tech-falls in this morning’s session over Ngao Shoua Whitehorn (Victory) and Amy Fearnside (TMWC), Winchester remains unscored on and undefeated.

Only one of the two returning 2020 Senior National champion made it through undefeated. Jennifer Page (TMWC) moved up and into the non-Olympic weight, 65 kg, and defeated Grand View University sophomore Andrea Schlabach, 10-0 in the first period.

McKendree alumni and U23 Bronze medalist Alex Glaude won the 72 kg championship with two wins over Skylar Grote (NYAC) in a best-of-three series, only giving up one point. Glaude just announced her commitment to the Dam RTC in Oregon earlier this week.

The first round of the tournament showcased the 2020 finals match at 57 kg—Lauren Louive (NYAC) against Xochitl Mota-Pettis (Rise RTC). Louive was down 9-0 this morning when the returning champ came back, scoring 20 unanswered points to tech Mota-Pettis. However, Louive is not unbeaten, as Junior World Champion Maya Nelson of the Sunkist Kids defeated Louive later in the session, 9-4

One official final pairing is set. At 76 kg Precious Bell (TMWC) will wrestle Dymond Guilford (TMWC). These two wrestles have gone back and forth through the past couple years. Guilford has the last win over Bell from Olympic Trials earlier this month.

The next session for will begin at 3:30 CT on FloWrestling, with the finals set for 7:00 p.m. CT. You can follow along on the brackets on FloArena.
