VegasNevada – The women’s freestyle tournament semifinal bouts wrapped up tonight and four returning champions advance to tomorrow’s US Open final.


Wisconsin RTC athlete Erin Golston (NYAC) returns to this year’s final at 50kg against NAIA star Nina Pham (Texas WC). Golston won via tech drop over both of their opponents today en route to the final, earning a 10-0 win over Arelys Valles in the semis.


Olympian Jacarra Winchester (TMWC) at 55kg dominated her opponent in the semi-finals. The 2019 world champion has yet to be scored in this tournament. Winchester will face Ronna Heaton (SKWC) in the final tomorrow; it will be a rematch of the 2000 US Olympic Team Trials where Winchester beat Heaton in both bouts, 7-4 and 12-2.


The 62kg final match features returning champion Jennifer Page (TMWC/NLWC) and 2020 Olympian and 2021 World silver medalist Kayla Miracle (SKWC). It won’t be the athlete’s first appearance in the US Open final either. Page has won this tournament for the past two years while Miracle has won three titles herself.


Two-time NAIA National Champion Dymond Guilford (TMWC) will face former National Team member and U23 World Team member Precious Bell (TMWC) in the 76kg final bout. It will be a rematch of last year’s Senior Nationals where Guilford pinned Bell.


At 57kg, Cameron Guerin (TMWC) defeated returning champion Alex Hedrick in a 2-1 decision. Guerin will face Adriana Dorado Marin (Army-WCAP) in the final bout of 57 kg.


In a highly anticipated final, Emma Bruntil (TMWC) will face former world bronze medalist Mallory Velte (TMWC). Both wrestlers have gone back and forth with their wins. Velte has already won the US Open, but for Bruntil it will be his first appearance in the final.


Also in the final, Felicity Taylor (McKendree Bearcat WC) against double world bronze medalist Alyssa Lampe (SKWC/DAMRTC) at 53 kg.


Xochitl Mota-Pettis (Rise RTC) will face Nanea Estrella (Spartan Combat RTC) in the 59kg bout.


Augsburg rookie Katerina Lange (TCRTC) will face Sienna Ramirez (Southern Oregon RTC) for the 68kg final


At 72kg, Skylar Grote (NYAC/DAMRTC) will face Marlynne Deede (TCRTC) for the title.

The top seven US Open winners will qualify for the World Team Trials Challenge tournament in Coralville, Iowa in May.


The women’s medal games return tomorrow at 4 p.m. You can watch the final matches as well as other tournaments in progress at the South Point Arena on FloLutte.
