Individually there were several standout performances. Colton Dawes (115) went 5-0 on the day showing excellent skills on his feet, coupled with smart down wrestling. Colton’s best wrestling this season.
Chance Enyeart (134) put together five great matches, but lost one very tight match to a missed call. Chances’ efforts shown through the adversity as he turned several solid moves from the bottom. I am expecting a strong finish to his season.
