Snow College’s women’s wrestling team put in a strong showing at the Embry-Riddle Mile High Open with 12 student-athletes placing in seven events.

The Badgers were coming off the Maverick Open where they had three athletes place. The ERAU Mile High Open was the second of eight events the women’s wrestling team will participate in this season.

The open was highlighted by Corrie Williams finishing in first place in the 136-pound division. She won by technical knockdown in the first round before winning by knockdown in just 34 seconds in the second round, putting her in contention for first place. She made quick work of Grand Canyon University’s Sami Tuttle winning by fall in just over two and a half minutes.

Snow College had two athletes finish on the proverbial podium during the opener. Lexus Bertagnolli won a couple of games before going down in the semi-final. However, she would rebound and defeat teammate Samantha Memmott via fall to enter the third place match. She was victorious in that match by falling to Doane University’s Savy Smith.

Following the loss to Bertagnolli, Memmott entered the match for fifth place where she narrowly lost to Daniela Suttles of Grand Canyon University by decision, 14-10 to finish sixth.

The other badger finisher in third place was Brinlee Gines. Ginés was defeated in the first round of the 130-pound event, but won five straight matches to claim third place. She won by knockdown in just over 90 seconds to enter the fight for third place where she faced her teammate Sophie Miller. Gines emerged victorious by fall to take third place.

Neida Valle, Angella Van Valkenburg, Kelsey Taylor, and Nya Seiuli were the other four finalists during the event.

Valle won two games, one by a 1:34 knockdown and the other by decision, to clinch a spot in the third-place game. She was beaten there to finish in fourth place.

Van Valkenburg broke through in the semifinal match after winning by technical fall in their opening matchup.

Van Valkenburg would finish in fourth place after losing the third place match.

Taylor defeated Simpson College’s Teri Denny to place fourth in the 155-pound division, while Seiuli placed fourth in the 191-pound division. Seiuli won two matches by fall before being defeated by technical fall in the third place match.
