Claire Dyment of the Bethel Lady Warriors Jr. High wrestling team won the gold medal in the 91 lbs. weight division. She defeated Nolan Nicholas of the Gladys Jung Cranes in her first bout, the quarterfinals. In the semifinal round she beat Mason Charles of Akiachak to advance to the championship round against Lincoln Brower of the Interior Youth Grappling Academy.

Brower, the top seed in the bracket, defeated Joachim Trefon of Gladys Jung Elementary, Keaton Ayapan of Kwethluk, and Seth Gilila also of Gladys Jung.

The championship round was exciting, Dyment who chose to wrestle in the boys open bracket, won by fall at 2:46. She helped her team win the 1st place team trophy and was named the Outstanding Wrestler in her event.

Dyment wasn’t the only girl wrestling in the boys division. Maya Iverson of Gladys Jung also participated, winning the bronze medal in the 70 lb. weight class.
