ADDISON – An alumna of Addison Trail and wrestler recently qualified to represent the U.S. at the World Championship this year.

Veronica Carlson won her weight division at the Women's World Team Wrestle-Offs at Palmer High School earlier this month. She was also fifth at the World University Games this year.

Using a succession of leg laces to finish both wins by technical fall, Carlson made her first Senior World Team.

The World Championship will be Sept. 16 through 22 in Budapest, Hungary.
