March 29th, 2018| Written by: Editor



Thirteen Louisiana wrestler from the Allstar Wrestling Club, the Bayou Elite Wrestling Club and the Live Oak Wrestling Club ventured to Cedar Falls, Iowea,, for the 2018 USAW Juniors/Cadets Folkstyle National Championships, held from Thursday, March 29th through March 31st.

Of the 13, three did well enough to be able to compete on Friday, and each are guaranteed at least 8th-place.

2018 Division I state champion Michael Lundin lost his first match but the won three in a row to remain in the competition. Bayou Elite teammate Evan Frost won his first match, lost his second and then won his next two to survive another day.  Twin brother Jacob Frost, a 2018 Division I runner-up, lost his first match and, like Lundin, ran-off three consecutive wins and the right to compete on Friday.

Allstar's Dane Harter, a 2018 Division II state champion, made it the farthest through the championship side of the bracket, reaching the quarterfinals.  There he was defeated, and he also lost his first consolation match.

Other with wins on the day were Live Oak's Jordan Griffin, and Dylan Lauriano, Charles Sauerwin and Jake Romig of Bayou Elite.

Some, of course, did not win a match, but the experience they gained is immeasurable.   And that is not something said just to placate them for not winning any matches. Wrestling kids from across the nation and competing at a national venue are invaluable experiences which will give them an edge later over those who do not compete in such competitions.

The Juniors and Cadets wrestling on Friday will be joined by some younger lads from Live Oak and Bayou Elite for the first rounds of the Intermediate, Schoolboy and Master B competition.  Should any of those wrestler survive the first day, they will compete again on Saturday.
