Schoolboy National Team Places 2nd in Both Styles

THE 2018 SCHOOLBOY NATIONAL DUAL MEET TEAM EARNS 2ND PLACE

 

The 2018 Schoolboy National Duals were held this past Thursday and Friday in Indanapolis, IN.  Fielding two competitive teams, Michigan was able to place collectively higher that it had in decades earning National Runner Up!!!

Team Michigan Blue, coached by Paul Donahoe, Doug Barr and Sam Hanau; assembled a top tier team that was able to grind out a very convincing 2nd place finish in both Freestyle and Greco-Roman, the highest for Team Michigan in many years.  The road was not easy as they competed against several top teams including Washington, California, Minnesota, New York, Georgia and Pennsylvania and many more. Many of the matches in the final pools were won by one a point or two.  The final battles with Illinois in both styles were hard fought with every wrestler giving blood and sweat to the cause.  In the end, Michigan came up just short to Illinois in both events.  

Team Michigan Red, Coach by George Ames, had it's own story of success.  Typically, Michigan fields two teams at a primary team and developmental team to give really great new schoolboys a chance to experience that level of competition.  Coach Ames new he could put together a very competitive team that would not only challenge the best in the country, but could support the other team if and when injuries arose.  And he did just that, Winning eight of the dual meets during the weekend.  "Michigan's Red Team has not won more than one dual in several years at the Schoolboys Duals, to win eight shows how how many talented wrestlers our state has."  said Coach Ames.  

Michigans future looks bright as we are already looking forward to next years Schoolboy National Duals with two very tough teams.
