U.S. Women’s Olympic Trials Day 2 Results, New Brackets

By Ryan Maquiñana

Day two of the inaugural U.S. Olympic Team Trials for Women was devoid of surprises Tuesday night at Pend Oreille Pavilion in Airway Heights, Wash.

In the flyweight division, six-time national champion Marlen Esparza of Houston, Tex., and rival Christina Cruz of New York City will meet once again on Thursday after winning their respective Winners’ Bracket quarterfinal bouts.

The most publicized lightweight has been five-time national champ Queen Underwood of Seattle, and she did not disappoint, cruising to victory and setting up a meeting with N'yteeyah Sherman of Ohio in the 132-pound Winners’ Bracket quarters.

As far as the middleweights were concerned, Claressa Shields of Flint, Mich., continued her march through the Open level, penciling herself in for a Winners’ Bracket quarterfinal against Pittsburgh, Pa.’s Tika Hemingway with another victory.

Six other fighters stared down the barrel of elimination and stayed alive with triumphs on Tuesday, while six more joined them in the Challengers’ Bracket and another six saw their Olympic dream come to an end.  These 12 fighters meet on Wednesday, and the losers will head home.

The six unbeaten women earn a day’s rest and return to action on Thursday.

Wednesday’s action can be seen live at 10 p.m. ET/ 7 p.m. PT on Universal Sports Live Stream.
