Last month, Gomez was named the 14th ranked wrestler in the high school Class of 2019, overall. In 2017, Alexis won a Junior Freestyle national title in Fargo at 152 lbs. The previous year she was a Cadet runner-up at 143 pounds. Gomez has won Illinois state freestyle titles in each of the last three seasons. This spring she won a Northern Plains Regional title and was third at the Western Regional. Alexis will join a Campbellsville team that is coming off of their first WCWA team title in 2017-18 and features three past WCWA finalists on their roster. She is the first recruit from the Class of 2019 to commit to the Tigers.
