Mandy Toope grabbed the gold medal in the 82kg division, while Gabrielle Fairhurst won the bronze medal in the 63kg division.

“This tournament is great to see how the wrestlers compare to other wrestlers their own age,” said assistant coach Dustin Helwig. “It was a very competitive day for the men, and I see them improving every tournament.”
