Sophia Cassella Sets New WNO Record with 35-Second Submission

Mar 29, 2022

Coming in as a replacement for Tammi Musumeci and taking the match on only 10 days notice, Sophia Cassella set a new record for the fastest submission in a women's WNO match.

Cassella, a brown belt under Tom DeBlass and Jason Ran, needed only 35 seconds to submit Jessie Crane with an inside heel hook.

Her lightning-quick finish was eight seconds faster than Amanda "Tubby" Alequin's toehold versus Jessa Khan at the WNO Championship in September of 2022.
