Flathead’s Vasquez Qualifies for USA Wrestling World Team

Tilynne Vasquez, a soon-to-be sophomore at Flathead High School, qualified for the USA Wrestling World Team and will compete in Argentina next month.

Vasquez qualified for the global tournament after a successful showing at the UWW Women’s Cadet National Championship tournament in Texas last month. Vasquez finished second in her weight-class division of 108 pounds, earning her a spot on the USA Wrestling UWW Cadet World Team.

As a freshman last winter, Vasquez earned sixth place among male competitors in the 103-pound division at the Class AA state wrestling tournament and became the first female in Montana history to land all-state honors in wrestling.
