ST. LOUIS— [BRACKET] Three members of Missouri Baptist Women's Wrestling traveled to Rochester, Minn. for the World Under 23 Team Trials. The individual champion would go on to represent the US National Team in Poland in November. 

Erika Mihalca took fourth place in the 58 kg division. After a defeat in her first match to King University's Allison Petix, Mihalca beat Abigail Mainzer (Aries Wrestling Club/Oklahoma City) by a fall in 1:44. She then knocked off Daniela Flores (Aries Wrestling Club/Oklahoma City) by a 10-6 decision to set up a rematch with Petix. It wasn't to be, however, as Petix came away with another victory.

Sarah Bollinger and Crystal Zamarripa both competed in the 63 kg division for MBU. Bollinger won her first match and finished the tournament 2-2 while Zamarripa went 0-2.

The Spartans will be back in action next weekend at the Lady Warrior Open in Fremont, Neb.
