Team USA has representatives in three of the four weight classes contested Friday that will be contested in pools. The stars of the competition are Olympic champions Helen Maroulis at 57kg and Tamyra Mensah Stock at 68kg.

Currently wrestling at North Central College, Amanda Martinez will meet Maroulis in pool competition. Martinez was a member of the 2021 U23 World Team.
