Spring break was a great time to travel for many families. For local wrestlers, it was also the culmination of long months of preparation, travelling every weekend to competitions and learning from their mistakes and triumphs to turn them into Championship victories on the mat. For Chasyn Winchel, Hudson Crystal and Tucker Crystal, it was the opportunity to compete at the national level in the NUWAY Nationals in Battle Creek, MI on April 8-9. They joined 1,218 fellow grapplers from all over the U. S. for this two day competition.

“The boys wrestled really well, holding their own against wrestlers from 25 different states to try to win The Eagle Trophy and their All-American certificates,” said Doug Crystal. “This is such an exciting tournament in which to compete. I hope we bring more wrestlers next year!”

Of the 90 competitors in the D1-6 & Under Division, Tucker Crystal placed 2nd after 3 matches, was 13th in Most Pins/Least Time with 2 in 2:38. He had the 33rd fastest pin with :58 and the 51st fastest with 1:46.

Chasyn Winchel placed 4th, tied for 1st in Most Matches with 5, was 50th in Most Pins/Least Time with 1 in 2:38, the 70th fastest pin with 2:38 and tied for 14th in Most Match Points with 24.

Of the 195 competitors in the D3-9 & 10 Division, Hudson Crystal had some of the best competition all year and fell short of his goal to win a match at Nationals. He is very optimistic and said he cannot wait for next year.

This is the final regular season competition for our club. We would like to thank everyone who joined us for the End Of Year Banquet, the parents for bringing their kids to all the practices and competitions every week, The Post for sharing these articles, and everyone who takes the time to read them and cheer for our kids. They really love seeing their names in the paper every week! We hope you all have a wonderful summer and we will see you next fall!
