Rachel Watters Reaches Junior Women Finals

The women look to cap off their individual tournament and it comes as no surprise that Rachel Watters (159) has placed herself in the finals of her weight class in the Junior Freestyle tournament.

Already the Junior World Team member, Rachel has won all three of her matches so far, and has won by a combined score of 32-0. She will wrestle in the finals tonight to try and claim a national title.

Tori Goodale made the return to the 117 weight class for the 2015 national tournament, but was unable to make the stand for the second year in a row.

After finishing on the stand in Cadets, Felicity Taylor (105) bumped up to the Junior division and went 3-2, notching three technical falls along the way. Nicole Watters, who just missed the stand in Cadets, went 0-2 for Iowa.
