Two Iowans Place at Cadet Nationals

Two Iowans will walk away with All-American honors from the Cadet National tournament in Akron, Ohio. Conrad Braswell and Kyle Biscoglia each placed in the top six at the national tournament at 42 kg and 46 kg respectively.

After opening the tournament with two strong wins, Braswell ran into a tough Malik Heinselman in the semifinals. Heinselman, would go on to win the weight and will represent the United State on the Cadet World team. Braswell then lost his consolation semifinal, before rebounding to a first period fall over Christian Goin (Illinois) to take 5th.

After being selected as the favorite to win his weight, Biscoglia starter with a 7-3 win, followed by a fall and 3-0 decision to reach the semifinals. Just like his fellow Iowan, Biscoglia would fall to the eventual champion Dylan D`Emilio (Ohio). Biscoglia finished the tournament with a 6th place finish.

Both Drew and Bryce West were All-Americans a year ago at 50 kg at this tournament, but neither were able to repeat on the stand. Bryce came the closest to medaling, but still finished two matches short of All-American honors.
