Bayou Elite (and Holy Cross) junior Michael Lundin lost his first match on Saturday, but came back with a hard-fought 12-9 victory to place seventh and earn All-American status at the 2018 USWAW Juniors/Cadets Folkstyle Championships in Cedar Falls, Iowa, today.  The Frost brothers, Evan and Jacob, lost both of their matches on Saturday, but that was still good enough to place 8th and be recognized as All-Americans.
