Junior Freestyle Finals Binge Watch

John Sachs Austin Gomez

The Junior National Freestyle finals was absolute fire. We had huge throws, awesome scrambles and just down right amazing performances. 

So why not relive all the excitement one more time. 


100: Malik Heinselman vs Brenden Garcia

Colorado showed just how talented as a pair of their studs battled in the first final of the day. Garcia heated things up with a nasty footsweep, but Heinselman is too battle-tested to get rattled.

106: Jason Holmes vs Rayvon Foley

Holmes showed just how good he is this weekend and it all culminated in a grinding 7-2 win over Rayvon Foley.

113: Nic Aguilar vs Dylan D'Emilio

Nic Aguilar definitely turned some heads as he picked up the upset win over #4-Dylan D'Emilio. It was an awesome battle that showed Aguilar's grit and will to win.

120: Gavin Teasdale vs Dalton Duffield

The Greco Champ Dalton Duffield showed he's got throws for days as he tossed Teasdale to his back and nearly getting the fall. But somehow Teasdale fought his way back. 

126: Austin Gomez vs Paul Konrath

OK, so, Austin Gomez is a bad dude. He came through with a huge throw to get the fall in the first period.

132: Ian Parker vs Taylor LaMont

Ian Parker sent the Michigan fanbase into a frenzy as he got the close win over Greco and returning Freestyle champion, Taylor LaMont.

138: Kanen Storr vs Nick Lee

This was the best match of the finals. I do not have any words to  describe the incredible wrestling that took place in this match.

145: Anthony Artalona vs Jarod Verkleeren

It was a grinder of a match. Artalona and Verkleeren are extremely evenly matched and it showed in this one.

152: Griffin Parriott vs Zander Wick

Griffin Parriott was on another level this weekend. He was absolutely unstoppable as he won the titles in both styles.

160: Jake Allar vs Max Wohlabaugh

Allar definitely was ready for freestyle. He didn't get the job done in greco, but he wouldn't be denied in the finals against Wohlabaugh.

170: Canten Marriott vs Owen Pentz

If you didn't know who Canten Marriott was before, I'm sure you do now. He had an impressive run to a title over a guy in Owen Pentz that had a great tournament as well.

182: Owen Webster vs Kevin Parker

Owen Webster started his run dominantly and ended it in the same fashion. 

195: Ben Darmstadt vs John Borst

Umm, Ben Darmstadt is not human. Outside of his final, where he dominated Borst, he did a highlight reel's worth of work.

220: Keegan Moore vs Sammy Colbray

Sammy Colbray won double titles this weekend, but it was his huge throws that had everyone screaming "ooooohhhh."

285: Gannon Gremmel vs Anthony Cassioppi

Gannon Gremmel is a beast and it showed. Cassioppi put up a good fight but in the end it didn't matter. G. Gremm wasn't leaving without a stop sign.
