DENVER — A girl from Denver East High School has advanced to Friday's quarterfinals in Colorado's 5A wrestling tournament.

Maya Nelson, a 120-pound junior, defeated Regis Jesuit's Carl Camposanto 13-9 in a match that drew a lot of attention Thursday night at the Pepsi Center.

The Denver Post (http://bit.ly/1edxcri) reports that a handful of girls have advanced to the final rounds of the wrestling tournament before but none have ever placed.

Nelson says she's been in love with wrestling since she was 4 and has trained at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs.

She was scheduled to face Pine Creek freshman Juan Rodriquez in the quarterfinals.
