Turns out it’s the same success story.
The freshman won five matches and advanced to the bronze-medal match at the annual Blue Chip Open in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.
Magnuson, of Mt. Edgecumbe High fame, finished fourth in the college open 191-pound class and scored 46.5 points for Warner Pacific.
The former Alaska state champion started her college career with a pin at the 3:42 mark. She followed that up with a 6-4 decision win.
She lost her third match but bounced back to pin her next two opponents, including McKayla Kerr in 2:15 in the quarterfinals.
In the third-place match, Magnuson lost to All-American Solove Naufahu by technical fall.
