Highline at the Nationals

(Report by Head Coach Scott Norton)

 This past weekend we traveled to Des Moines, Iowa for the national tournament.  We had a solid showing, but came up short in some areas.

 Justin Weiding was a surprise qualifier at 157, but went 0-2 this weekend.

 Brad Reddaway 133, really impressed me this weekend.  He only had about 4 practices before nationals.  He was notified that he made it last Friday night.  He did an incredible job.  He was stopped in the round of 12.  However, in his match to All-American, he injured his knee in the first 30 seconds.  Had he not hurt his knee he would be an All-American.  It was a gutsy performance.

 Connor Rosane 184, also had a good showing.  He beat his nemesis Cruz Del Angel, who had beaten a few times earlier in the year.  Connor was stopped at the round of 12.

 Ben Tynan was upset in the semis.  We had to medical default him down to 6th.  He was upset by Richard Black by fall.  Ben did become an All-American which is still impressive.  It wasn’t his goal, but things sometimes go sideways when its most important.  He is one of the best kids I have ever had wrestle for me.  When you look back, Ben won 3 tournaments, was ranked 1st most of the year, and finished as an All-American.  That's pretty good.

 Last, we were named National Academic Champions back to back, and won 3 out of 4 years.   We pride ourselves in having true student-athletes.
