Correction: Marceline girls medal five in Tiger Mat

Ciarrah Bell and Addy Schmitt both claimed gold medals on Saturday, and Rachel Cupp and K'Lea Dameron both battled to their respective championship matches before falling, and claimed second.
Gracey Jordan finished third.
For Bell, Schmitt, and Dameron, Saturday marked the first time that they had ever wrestled a live match.
