Lopez, of Moore High School, then put the team up 14-9 with a pin over Stella Segura.
“I feel like I wrestled pretty good,” Lopez said. “I didn’t start off that great but I came back and kept it together. On top, I I went to a high gut and a chicken wing. In neutral, I went to ankle picks and high crotches.”
