Hutchison keys OCU’s third title (Wrestling)
Michaela Hutchison of Soldotna made history wrestling guys, but her legacy will be against gals.
That’s because the 121-pound Alaskan—who five years ago became the first girl in U.S. high school history to win a state title against boys—is proving to be nearly unbeatable verses her gender.
Hutchison, of Skyview High fame, improved her season record to 24-0 for Oklahoma City University after helping the defending champion Lady Stars beat Simon Fraser 27-15 in Sunday’s championship match of the NWCA National Duals in Cedar Falls, Iowa.
Hutchison pinned her Canadian opponent in 86 seconds, her tenth fall of the season, to give the Stars a 13-4 advantage in the title tilt.
She won her semifinal match by 2-1, 1-0 scores.
Hutchison, a reigning national champion, has a career record of 58-3, with 24 coming by pin.
She will shoot for her second straight national title at the WCWA Nationals on Jan. 30.
