GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) - Colorado Mesa’s Redshirt Sophomore Marissa Gallegos will compete at the United States Olympic Team Trials at Dickies Arena in Fort Worth, Texas on April 3rd and 4th.

She will have a chance at making the U.S. Women’s Olympic Freestyle Wrestling Team. This is the first time a CMU Maverick has gone to the Olympic Trials for women’s wrestling.

Gallegos is seeded number 11 at 53 kg and will likely match-up with number 6 seed Alisha Howk for her first match-up of the weekend.

To qualify for the Olympic Team, the Denver native will have to win the tournament, then have a best two-of-three showdown with Jacarra Winchester, who qualified for the Olympics at the 2020 Pan American Olympic Qualifier.
