Next week, six team captains will draft their teams for the Captains’ Cup presented by Titan Mercury Wrestling Club, a dual event that will showcase the top women’s freestyle athletes in the United States competing for $50,000. The draft is set for January 23 live on FloWrestling.org.

The plan is to have the women who qualified the USA for the Olympic Games serve as the captains: Sarah Hildebrandt (50 kg), Jacarra Winchester (53 kg), Helen Maroulis (57 kg), Kayla Miracle (62 kg), Tamyra Mensah-Stock (68 kg) and Adeline Gray (75 kg), pending confirmation of their participation.

The competition will take place February 13-14, broadcasted by FloWrestling.
