Women’s Wrestling Dominates Two Mizzou Colleges
BRISTOL, Tenn. – King College Women's Wrestling held its first home meet of the season and dominated the competition by vast margins. King defeated tenth-ranked Missouri Baptist in a shutout and seventh-ranked Missouri Valley College 32-9, Sunday morning.

King posted a 47-0 rout of No. 10 Missouri Baptist, though the Spartans sponsored a short lineup in the meet. Of the four regular matches that took place, King registered two pins and a technical fall in the win. Victoria De Lac (Graham, N.C.) led the meet off for King with a pin of Desiree Ramos, 1:45 in the second period to give the Tornado a quick 5-0 lead. Standout Alli Ragan (Carbondale, Ill.) registered the team's second pin of the match 27 seconds into the second period over Caroline Benlee. Freshman Kayla Brendlinger (Slippery Rock, Pa.) defeated Charmagne Monis by technical fall (6-0, 7-0).

The Tornado also handled No. 7 Missouri Valley, winning its first seven matches and eight of ten on the day. King (7-1) tallied three pins in their eight wins by Emily Martin (Frisco, Texas) at 109 pounds, Samantha Klingel (Kresgeville, Pa.) at 116 pounds and Sarah Hildebrandt (Granger, Ind.) at 123 pounds. After Hildebrandt's pin, the Tornado earned their next six wins by decision.

Emily Martin, ranked first in the nation at 109 pounds, pinned third-ranked Britney Heatherly 1:31 into the first period. Ragan retained her No. 1 ranking at 136 pounds with a 2-0 marker on Sunday. Julie Salata (Canton, Mich.) wrestled out of her usual weight class, moving up to 170 pounds where she defeated second-ranked Brittany Jones by decision without surrendering a point (3-0, 3-0).

Reigning national champion Marina Lambert (Chesapeake, Va.) was held out of the lineup as she continues to get back to full-strength. Her replacement, Kerri Bumpers (Hampton, Va.) was beaten by decision (2-0, 2-1) by the Vikings' Paloma Basulto, ranked eighth in the country. Though it did not count as an official bout, Bumpers shut out Missouri Valley's Sara Vernon (1-0, 2-0) in a win by decision during exhibition play.

King improves to 7-1 overall after going 2-0 in competition on Sunday. The Tornado preceded their meet on Sunday with a 5-1 appearance in meet in Oklahoma City, Okla. where their only loss was to the defending national champion Oklahoma City University.

The Tornado will compete next at the Missouri Valley Open on Nov. 5 in Marshall, Missouri.
