Modesto girl wrestles her way onto the USA World Team

MODESTO, CA - A Modesto wrestler earned a spot on the USA National Wrestling Team. 

James C. Enochs High School freshman Sariyah Jones, 14, traveled to Lakeland, Fla., to compete in the Body Bar National Freestyle Championships. The Body Bar Nationals, held March 10-12, is a World Team qualifier for women. 

A first place finish earns the winner a spot on the World Team and a chance to represent the United States at the World Championships in Serbia. A second place finish is the alternate position and an opportunity to represent the United States at the PanAm games in Colombia.

Jones won her way onto the world team, having to best Makenzie Bacich, from Stockton's Bear Creek, in a best of three series in the finals. Jones won the first two matches quickly, putting aside any doubt as to who would represent the United States in the 43 kg (94.75 lbs) weight class. In fact, no one was able to score a point on her during the tournament.
