Wonder Woman Preview

For many girls around the state, their holiday wishes have not yet come true. They have one last gift they want before they can call 2021 complete: a belt at Wonder Woman. 

This is the biggest tournament of the season outside of state, bringing together a whopping 80 of the 112 total ranked girls. In some of the weight classes, all eight of the ranked girls in the weight class will be participating. 

The tournament will take place on Wednesday and Thursday, Dec. 29-30. Weigh-ins on Dec. 29 will be at 9:30 a.m., with wrestling to follow at 11. Weigh-ins are scheduled for 8 a.m. Dec. 30, with action starting at 9:30 a.m.

Like all tournaments, lineups are not guaranteed, so some could be absent, and some could shift weights, but the one thing that is certain is many undefeated records will be tested, many will be upset, and everyone will have an amazing tournament experience going into the second half.

Top 4 are the highest ranked four girls in the weight class, and the “sleeper” is an unranked girl who could stir up some trouble in the bracket. 

Let’s get into the preview:

100lbs Bracket

Ranked Girls: 5

Ashlyn Eli of Nixa is the clear front-runner in this weight class. The 2-time State Champ’s closest competition will be Eureka’s Lilly McCollum, who wrestled Eli in the State quarterfinals last year. Eli won that match by fall. Eli has also defeated the #3 ranked Lillian Cottingim by first period fall at the Stampede. The top of the podium seems to be Eli’s to lose, but competition for the rest of the spots should be fierce. Like many of the weight classes, many of these girls haven’t wrestled each other yet.

Top 4: Ashlyn Eli, Lilly McCollum, Lillian Cottingim, Isa-Bella Mendoza

Sleeper: Courtney Hoff (Fort Zumwalt North)
