The Chadron State College women’s wrestler Kamila Montenegro escaped with a pin over NWCA No. 8 Tatum Heikkila at 170 pounds, but the host Mavericks, ranked No. 5 in NCAA women’s wrestling, received forfeits at five classes and pinned two CSC wrestlers to extend past the Eagles 41-6 in Grand Junction Friday evening.

Montenegro’s win by fall was the only bout win by the Eagles. The Mavericks received 25 points on forfeits and, in addition to the two pins, recorded two decisions in regulation.

Heikkila was the only one of Mesa’s seven ranked wrestlers, among six different weight classes, to participate.

In the first two matches of the evening, CSC’s Kinsey Smith dropped a 6-0 decision to CMU’s Kaylie Catalano at 101, and the Mavericks’ Jolynn Harris topped the Eagles’ Ryleigh Dye 3-1, at 136. In between the two came four uncontested weight classes. The Mavs gave up an additional match point in the 136-pound match.

At 143 and 155, the Mavericks earned two wins by fall, and then Montenegro scored the biggest win of the night at 170.

Another uncontested weight class came at 191.

The Eagles fell to 1-4 in dual meets, while the Mavericks improved to 5-0.

Chadron State is off for a couple of weeks before entering the Grand View Open in Des Moines, Iowa, on February 5.
