Sydney Perry took 3rd in the State a few weeks ago. She went 3-1 while pinning three of her opponents. Her only loss was a overtime loss to the 3x defending champ! Well done Sydney!
We took six of our 9&10 year olds to Danville in late March for the Midget State Championships. Congratulations to four of our wrestlers Zach Szuberla, Zach Zink, Harley Karner and Dominic Savini who came within one match of placing. We did get two wrestlers on the podium with Aidan Huck (6th) and Sean Scheck (3rd) placing in state!
A total of 5 BWC wrestlers advanced to the IKWF State Tournament last weekend. Mikey Caliendo capped off his 48-4 season with a huge 3rd place finish. This is the highest IKWF finish for a BWC wrestler in over 10 years. Congrats to our other state qualifiers Riley Woods, Shawn Fichtel, Zach Benson and Adan Mendoza.
We took 7 wrestlers to Bantam State this year featuring the best 6-8yr olds in Illinois. Congratulations to our three placewinners in Andrew Koc (2nd), Jack Duraski (4th) and Dylan Wells (5th). Also competing were Tyler Pepin, Cole Howland , Brayden Howland and Braden Garcia. Andrew Koc's 2nd place finish was the highest in club history at Bantam State!
