Of the eighth teams in the tournament, three were from Missouri, and the team that came out on top was Team Missouri Red. The team won all four of its duals, including a 49-19 victory against Red Venom in the championship bout.  

Mo West, a team based in the Kansas City Metro Area took fifth and Team Missouri Blue finished seventh.

Missouri Red won all three of its matches in its pool, defeating Team Oklahoma Red 55-5, Flight Company (Kansas) 49-12 and Team Kansas 45-16.  

The team had nine of its 13 wrestlers finish 4-0. Those who went undefeated were McKenzie Brewer (87), Jayden Keller (103), Alyssa King (108), Angelina Vargas (115), Jayci Shelton (123), Brenya Crahan (130), Amitria McNack (148), Brooke Bennett (195/235) and Mariyah Brumley (195/235).

Against Red Venom, Brewer, of Fulton, pinned Tenley Hemmingsen in 1:50 to help her jump out to a 5-0 advantage. She used an armbar to roll her opponent onto her back.

“It just came to me,” Brewer said of the pin. I think I wrestled really good. I could have done better in my first match.”

After Red Venom tied the team score at 5-5 following a forfeit victory, Troy’s Zoey Haney (97) got a pin in 1:55 and Brookfield’s Keller got a pin in just 19 seconds to put Missouri Red up 15-5.
