The Cedar Falls Wrestling Program, CFWC, and USA Mat Club had several wrestlers participate this last weekend in USAW Folkstyle Nationals at the UNI Dome. We had a total of 7 wrestlers participate in 3 different divisions. As we continue through the offseason the increased participation in at these offseason tournaments only shows that our wrestlers are buying and believing into the system. We only look forward to the success of our current and future Cedar Falls Wrestling Programs!
Junior Justin Campbell, Sophomore Jack Plagge, Freshmen Bailey Roybal and Lincoln Willett, 8th Connor McCartan all had very good tournaments all getting a win in the national tournament. Both Bailey and Lincoln fell just short of All-American honors getting knocked out 1 round from placing.
8th Dylan Whitt and Ryley Barnett were able to get to the podium with Dylan Whitt placing 4th and Ryley Barnett capturing the top spot as National Champion! Dylan had a tough road losing his first round match but battling back, winning his next 4 matches before losing the 3rd place match in the ultimate tie breaker OT 5-4. Ryley went 3-0 in route to his first National Championship!
The Cedar Falls Wrestling Program is looking forward to more offseason participation from all of the Cedar Falls area wrestlers. We are working out at the USA Mat Club M,T,TH nights 6:30-7:45. Stop in and check it out.
