Bullen and Miracle pin their way to titles; Lady Tigers win first-ever team national championship
Needing two wins in the final two matches of the WCWA National Championship to claim the first-ever team title in Lady Tiger wrestling history, who else would you rather have in your corner than Grace Bullen and Kayla Miracle?
The freshman Bullen, wrestling at 130 lbs., earned a pin over Simon Fraser’s Nicole Burnaby to pull Campbellsville within 1.5 points of SFU and that set up the most iconic finish in Lady Tiger history…. With arguably the greatest athlete in Campbellsville Athletics history.
Kayla Miracle, wrestling at 136, earned her fourth straight national title after coming from behind to pin Grays Habor College’s Desiree Zavala in the first period to seal Campbellsville national championship.
Bullen did not allow a point all championship and out-scored her opponents 42-0, while Miracle, just the fourth woman ever to win four WCWA national titles, completed her stellar CU career in style.
Mariah Harris (170) also wrestled in the finals but lost to Brittany Marshall of Wayland Baptist.
Campbellsville out-lasted Simon Fraser by five team points, 196.5 – 191.5.
