Hutchison joins Team USA at worlds (Wrestling)
Four years ago, Alaskan Michaela Hutchison made American history when she became the first girl to win a high school state championship against boys.
These days she’s proving to be nearly unbeatable against women.
Hutchison, of Soldotna, is a national champion for Oklahoma City University after winning the 121-pound weight class at last year’s Women’s Collegiate Wrestling Association championships. She compiled a 34-3 record as a freshman with 14 pins.
She also won one of her four matches for the Oklahoma City men’s team at 125.
But wait, it gets better.
Now Hutchison is being recognized by Team USA. She is currently with the all-star squad at the Senior World Championships in Denmark, serving as a training partner for American teammate Tatiana Padilla. Hutchison is the fourth-ranked 121-pounder in the U.S. women’s rankings.
The sophomore-to-be is the lone Alaskan at Oklahoma City, which kicks off the season Oct. 17.
