Lubbock Coronado’s Tessa Urias Secures Spot at Fargo Nationals with Strong Performance in Fort Worth

Tessa Urias saw her high school season end a little bit earlier than she expected.

She got a little bit of revenge from high school season on her way to a pair of runner-up finishes in the 16U bracket.

Urias was a defending state champion in both Greco-Roman and Freestyle last year in the 14U but made the jump up a division this year.

Since the high school season ended, she has competed in tournaments or events in Plainview, Spring, Southlake and the Panhandle Regionals in Amarillo. 

The top-two finish punched her ticket to the Fargo Nationals in July. 

“It is my first year at 16U and I always wanted to go to Fargo, but I was too young,” she said. “Being able to take my coach and wrestle for Texas is big.”

Competing for ReZults Wrestling in Lubbock, under coach Sam Estrada, Urias was 4-1 in the freestyle bracket.

She lost in the finals to Nevada Daniels from Katy Area Wrestling Club by a 9-4 decision. Daniels was a fourth-place finisher at 114 pounds in 6A for Katy.

Then, Urias got a challenge. Third-place finisher Dalilah Coyle of Silverback Wrestling Fort Worth for a true-second place match at 112 pounds.  

There is some history between the two.

At the UIL Region 1-5A meet in February, Coyle beat Urias, 7-4, to end her season….
