Top age-group women wrestlers to compete in USA Wrestling’s FILA Cadet National Championships; FILA



The best young women freestyle wrestlers in the United States will travel to Dayton, Ohio to compete in two major USA Wrestling national championship events. The Women's FILA Cadet National Championships, as well as the Women's FILA Junior Nationals and World Team Trials will be held Hara Arena in Dayton, Ohio, June 1-3. The FILA Cadet age level includes athletes who are 15-17 years old. Top young high school and middle school wrestlers from across the nation will battle for coveted national championships and All-American honors. Both of these tournaments are open, meaning there are no pre-qualification requirements. Athletes who wish to compete must meet age requirements. For additional information, contact Gary Abbott of USA Wrestling at 719-598-8181. Returning FILA Cadet National champions include Erica Dye of West Virginia (94), Sara Fulp-Allen of California (101), Malinda Ripley of California (108), Brooke Bogren of Kansas (114), Brandy Rosenbrock of Michigan (121) and Devin Kelly of Pennsylvania (143). The FILA Junior World age level includes athletes from 17-20 years old. FILA, the international federation, hosts a World Championships at this age group each year. The champions from this event will be eligible to represent the United States at the FILA Junior World Championships in Martigny, Switzerland, Aug. 16-19.

Montgomery was the 2001 U.S. Nationals champion on the Senior level, and was named Outstanding Wrestler at the national championships. She was also the Outstanding Wrestler at last year's FILA Junior Nationals and World Team Trials. Smalley won a gold medal at the 2000 FILA Junior World Championships. All seven of the returning FILA Junior Nationals champions have been nationally ranked on the Senior level in the United States. This competition will be held alongside the Central Kids/Cadet Regional Championships, featuring the top youth athletes from ages 9-16 from Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan and West Virginia.
