Team USA wins big against International All-Stars at historic Bout at the Ballpark

It was an electric night inside Texas Rangers’ Globe Life Field as Team USA took on international all-star teams in Greco-Roman, women’s freestyle and men’s freestyle in friendly competition, cheered on by more than 12,000 fans on Saturday night.

Bout at the Ballpark marked the first event of its kind as the international duals were paired with a college dual, featuring the two most storied college programs in the country, Oklahoma State and Iowa.

Women’s competition
The U.S. women’s freestyle team won four of its five matches, taking on athletes from Canada as well as a fellow Team USA member.

The American wins included shut outs from two-time Senior World Team member Victoria Anthony at 50 kg and 2016 Olympic champion Helen Maroulis at 57 kg. Anthony took out Canada’s top-ranked lightweight Madison Parks, 10-0, in 3:49, while Maroulis, a two-time Olympic medalist, downed Karla Godinez, ranked No. 1 in the NCAA, with an 8-0 victory.

2020 Olympians Jacarra Winchester and Kayla Miracle each notched victories on Saturday. Winchester, a 2019 World champion, took on U.S. National Team member Dom Parrish at 53 kg. The pair have faced off in the past with Winchester winning by technical fall; however, tonight’s matchup resulted in Parrish closing the gap but a 5-2 decision for Winchester.
