Rising young talents Bell, Nelson to lock up at HWC Showdown Open

Two young, rising women's freestyle prospects will do battle on Nov. 1 at the Hawkeye Wrestling Club Showdown Open when Precious Bell takes on Jordan Nelson.

Bell, a 23-year-old California native, currently ranks second behind five-time World champion Adeline Gray on the USA women's freestyle ladder at 76 kilograms. She's coming off a banner 2019 season that included a U.S. Open title, a Final X appearance and a trip to the U23 World Championships.

Nelson is a senior at Life University. She placed third at 170 pounds last season at the WCWA Championships. Her resume includes wins over U23 World bronze medalist Kori Bullock, national champion Mariah Harris and two-time National Team member Hannah Gladden.

This is the second women's freestyle pairing on the card, which will be streamed live on Trackwrestling. World silver medalist Sarah Hildebrandt will wrestle three-time National Team member Erin Golston in the other women's bout.
