Kendon Kayser, fresh off of an All-American 6th-place finish in the USAW Cadet Men's Greco-Roman championships. has advanced to the quarterfinals in the Cadet freestyle 138 pounds competition.  Kayser, after receiving a bye in the first round, pinned New York's Steven Isaac in 1:08 and followed that with 10-0 technical falls over Marylland's Andrew Shiman and California's Joseph Barnes.

In the quarterfinals on Thursday Kayser will vie against Kameron Frame of Kansas.  According to the Louisiana Wrestling Facebook page, this will be a repeat of a Cliff Keen semifinals match in which Frame won 10-8 by a takedown in the first overtime period.  (Frame also won the championship in that tournament.)

Of the Louisiana wrestlers who have been eliminated from the event, Blake Mateau (106) won three matches against two losses, and Joey Foret and Josh Ramirez each finished with records of 2-2.
