Posted December 19, 2016

Current and former members of the Missouri Valley College women's wrestling team competed at the US Senior Nationals in Las Vegas, Nev., over the weekend.


Leading the current Viking competitors was Senior Christy Powell (Powder Springs, Ga.) who finished fourth in the 53kg weight class.  Powell advanced to the championship semifinal round before losing.  Powell eventually advanced to the consolation finals before taking fourth place.


Alicia Reyes also competed, but lost her opening two matches in the 55kg weight class.


Former Viking Jacarra Winchester cruised through the opening rounds of the 55kg weight class, winning her matches by technical falls.  However, Winchester lost in the championship match by a 3-2 decision, finishing in second place.


Up next for the Viking women's wrestling program is WCWA National Duals in Fort Wayne, Ind., scheduled for Jan. 5-6.
