RALEIGH, N.C. -- Victoria Anthony, Jenna Burkert and Kayla Miracle fell short at Final X last year.

On Sunday, all three earned a chance to right last year's wrong.

Anthony, Burkert and Miracle were among the 10 women's champions crowned at the World Team Trials Challenge Tournament on Sunday in Raleigh, N.C.

Anthony, a two-time World Team member and three-time U.S. Open champion, is making a return trip to Final X after beating U.S. Open runner-up Erin Golston in two straight matches at 50 kilograms. Anthony won the first match 8-2 before closing out the series with a 4-3 victory. She will now face Whitney Conder at Final X. Conder defeated Anthony at last year's Final X as well as this year's U.S. Open.

Burkert, who filled in for the injured Alli Ragan at last year's World Championships, was dominant in picking up two victories over Arian Carpio at 57 kilograms. She won 11-2 and 10-0. Burkers faces Becka Leathers at Final X, a rematch from this year's U.S. Open won by Leathers.

Miracle, a three-time U.S. Open champion and four-time WCWA national champion, also dominated in the best-of-three finals. Facing Desiree Zavala, Miracle earned a first-period fall in the first match and closed out the series with a 10-0 technical fall. She will now face Mallory Velte in a rematch of last year's Final X. Velte defeated Miracle last year and then went on to capture a bronze medal at the World Championships.

Maya Nelson, a 2017 junior world champion, secured her spot in Final X by defeating Macey Kilty, a Cadet world champion and Junior world silver medalist last year. Nelson blanked Kilty 5-0 in the first match before closing out the series with an 11-3 victory.

Other World Team Trials Challenge Tournament champions crowned in women's wrestling included Katherine Shai (53 kilograms), Dominique Parrish (55 kilograms), Lauren Louive (59 kilograms), Alex Glaude (68 kilograms), Victoria Francis (72 kilograms) and Precious Bell (76 kilograms).
