Svihel Battles to a Title, 43 All-American at Folkstyle Nationals

By Brandon Paulson, 04/02/18, 12:45PM CDT


Another Folkstyle Season is in the books with the USAW Folkstyle Nationals this past weekend. 

Jake Svihel wrestled with a high pace, and continued scoring points throughout,on his way to a Junior Folkstyle National title with a win over #3 ranked wrestler in the country. Jore Volk also had a great tournament and was one move away from a title in the Cadet division. He is also an aggressive wrestler that is good in all 3 positions. On the youth side, we had 14 in the semis, and 4 in the finals, but didn't come away with a champion. Zach Silvis is our most improved wrestler this year and had a great finals match with an outstanding wrestler. Carter Ban also wrestled great and lost in a close one in the finals. 

Overall, the team did very well with top 3 finishes in the Intermediate, Novice, and Schoolboy divisions and winning the Intermediate division. 

43 Wrestlers placed in the top 8 to earn All-American honors. Congrats to the wrestlers on the hard work they have put in! All the placers are below.
