TULSA, Okla., — Team Wisconsin is showcasing its talent in Tulsa as Greco-Roman and women’s freestyle hit the mats today at USA Wrestling’s Junior National Duals. Both teams have battled through the preliminary pool competition and are set for placement pool rounds in the morning.

Women’s freestyle closes day one with a 3rd place finish in Pool A, sporting a 3-2 record. Their wins came over South Carolina (56-15), Texas Red (46-25), and Kansas (36-33). Despite a tough loss in the championship semifinal to Pennsylvania Blue, L57-17, the team fought their way back to claim 3rd and forced a true 2nd matchup with Iowa (L53-14). Their performance lands them in the Bronze/Copper pool where competition continues in the morning.

Junior Greco locked in a 5th-place finish in Pool C with a 3-2 standing at the close of day one. The Greco team put together strong wins over North Carolina (49-14), Louisiana (35-29), and Florida (49-20). The team stayed right in step with their most challenging opponents but were edged out in the championship and consolation semifinals to Kansas (35-31) and Michigan (35-29). Wisconsin Greco will battle for placement in the Red/Blue pool tomorrow.

One thing you can count on is that the Junior Greco and women’s freestyle teams are out to get the next best thing!

Also beginning competition tomorrow are the 14U and 16U women’s freestyle teams set to compete in Westfield, Indiana. The 14U dual team, which competed alongside the Juniors in Tulsa last year with a 9th-place finish overall, is ready to showcase their skills. Alexa Thomas, Ramsey Brandenburg, and Bryn Schmidt lead the team with experiences as returners.

The girls' 16U division at National Duals is a new event organized by USA Wrestling, reflecting the rapid growth of girls and women’s wrestling nationwide. Wisconsin’s powerhouse lineup features 2024 Women’s Nationals All-Americans Brynn Engel, Harlow Skenandore, and Madi Peach, along with 2023 Fargo finalist Brooke Huffman and more WIAA state champions. Notably, Madi Peach was part of the junior squad in 2023 when the divisions were combined.
