WCWAs Is A World Team Trials Qualifier

The first national championships of the collegiate wrestling season are this weekend in Oklahoma City. However, the 15th Women's Collegiate Wrestling Association tournament is important for another reason.

Much like how NCAA Division I champions qualify for World Team Trials on the men's freestyle side, the WCWA champs also qualify for the women's freestyle trials by winning the two-day tournament, which gets underway Friday.

Watch the 2018 WCWA Nationals LIVE on FloWrestling

The WCWA already operates under freestyle and generally builds its season around the USA Wrestling schedule. Last year, there were two WCWA champs who went on to make the world team, Haley Augello at 53kg and Mallory Velte at 63kg.

There are 10 weights for WCWA competitions, but they differ from international weights and are also measured in pounds: 101, 109, 116, 123, 130, 136, 143, 155, 170, and 191.

Below are complete WTT qualifying procedures, and the most recent WCWA rankings can be found here.

Wrestling starts at 10 AM Central time on Friday. Brackets will be FloArena.

2018-19 NCAA Preview & Predictions: 285-Pounds

285 lbs Billy Miller, Edinboro vs Derek White, Oklahoma State

You know how when there are several of the same kind of animal together, you can call them by a collective noun? Like a gaggle of geese or a pride of lions? Well, that applies to classic monsters as well. For example, it is customary to say you are being haunted by a coven of witches or that you are being chased by a pack of wolfmen. Similarly, you can say you have nightmares about a vanity of Draculas, a stumble of Frankensteins, a plague of FloBros, or a bog of eternal stench.
