SHINGLE SPRINGS — Ponderosa’s Jaclyn Fields took fourth place in the Body Bar FILA Cadet Freestyle Wrestling Nationals at the Irving Convention Center in Irving, Texas.
The Bruin junior lost a tough 5-3 battle to New Hampshire’s Olivia Toth in the 3rd/4th place championship bout.
Earlier this month, Fields won the Sacramento Area Wrestling Association (SAWA) USA Tournament in the 160-pound weight division. She competed in both Folkstyle and Freestyle and was champion of both brackets.
Prior to winning the SAWA Championships, Jaclyn’s sister, Abyah, and one of Abyah’s teammates from Pleasant Grove Middle school trained that morning at an all girls clinic with World Team member Veronica Carlson from the Olympic Training Center.
Fields is Ponderosa’s first-ever Girls Master Champion having won the CIF Sac-Joaquin Girls Masters Tournament in February. She also won the USGWA national tournament in March to become a national title holder as well.
