A dual threat on the wrestling mat, Soldotna’s Michaela Hutchison of Oklahoma City University can end things quickly or go the distance.

It means trouble for opponents either way.

A three-time WCWA All-American, Hutchison showcased her versatility at the recent Missouri Valley Open with two wins by first-round pin and two wins by 2-0 decision en route to capturing the 123-pound weight class title.

She beat former national runner-up Tiffany Sluik of Jamestown in the championship match.

Hutchison, of Skyview High fame, is a two-time national champion who has more than 115 career victories. Nearly half of her wins have come by pin.

This was her second Missouri Valley Open title.
