Pre Quarters Notes
- Phenom Brady Berge, our projected champ, was pinned in less than a minute by Greco Champ Matt Park.

- Eric Hong, who we projected as champ, and Austin O'Connor, who we slotted 3rd, met in a pre-quarter match! And it was finals-worthy. Hong led 8-2 before O'Connor stormed back to tie it, but Hong won on criteria. You gotta watch this match.

- 3x Fargo Finalist Austin Gomez survived two serious scares and incoming phenom Merola shocked multiple time AA Brent Jones.

- GR Champ Ethan Karsten had a 9-0 lead over Hunter Bolen. He won, but 9-7 in a great bout.

Quarters "Wow Factor"
 - GR Champ Ian Timmins pinned Returning FS Champ Kaden Gfeller. 

- Matt Park won GR and continued his assault, pinning his way to the semi's.

- Jared Siegrist beat GR finalist James Handwerk.

- In one of the most anticipated bouts of the round, returning finalist Austin Gomez teched returning All American Ian Parker.

The Semi Story

- Yianni, who missed making 113 by being a couple tenths over, had a big lead before he pinned Greco Champ Colton Williams.

- Chad Red had a 4-0 lead and held off a late rally to beat returning Champ Taylor LaMont.

- Nick Lee looked dominant in a win over Eric Hong.

- Matt Park won GR earlier in the week. Now he pinned his way to the finals where he'll face Cadet World Team Member Jared Verkleeren.

- There will be two rematches from the Cadet GR finals. 170 and 182.

- Another rematch from the GR finals happened in the semi's where Osuwaru Odigizuwa reversed the decision from Monday with Kevin Vough.

79kg Storylines For The 2018 US Open
