Another great USAW Folkstyle National tournament. Nick Novak, New Prague, won the Junior 126lb bracket with a couple gutsy wins in the semis and finals. In the semifinals Nick got a reversal as time expired to win by 1! Zach Hanson, Lakeville North, put on a dominating display in the finals with 2 tilts in the third period to come away the victor. Joey Muhlstein, Mounds View, won a hard fought 2-1 battle to win his National title. Lastly, Emily Shilson, Mounds View, won her 98th National Title(ok, maybe a little exaggeration) at the Girls USAW Folkstyle Nationals.
Danny Striggow, Orono, also won a National Championship at the NHSCA Nationals in the Junior division at 220lbs!
This ends our folkstyle season and now we move on to the International styles, Freestyle and Greco-Roman! Below is the list of placers.
