Schriever and DeVos win Greco-Roman National Titles

The Asics – USA Wrestling Kids Greco-Roman National tournament was today in Wisconsin and a pair of Iowa middle school wrestlers were able to capture national titles in the Greco-Roman championships. It is the second leg of the Triple Crown, as both Cullan Schriever (77) and Cade DeVos (105) won folkstyle national titles earlier this year, and now can add Greco titles to their already impressive resumes.

Schriever was extremely impressive as he won three of his first four matches by technical fall, with the fourth win still being a dominant 10-4 win. His finals match was closer than some may have expected. Schriever jumped out to a 6-0 first period lead on Paxton Creese, before the Minnesota wrestler came back with six straight to tie it. Schriever was able to get another takedown to go up 8-6 for the win.

Schriever is ranked #12 in Flowrestling’s middle school big board, and just last month was named to the Schoolboy All-Tournament team at the National Duals after he went 16-0 combined in freestyle and Greco-Roman. The crazy stat of that terrific performance was that of his 16 wins, 15 of those were technical falls.

After winning a folkstyle national title at 98 pounds, DeVos bumped to 105 for the freestyle and Greco-Roman legs of the Crown. On paper repeating looked to be a big challenge, as another folkstyle national champion Jon Bailey was in his bracket, but DeVos still prevailed 6-0 in his finals to complete the second leg.

DeVos is ranked #36 by Flowrestling, and as mentioned was one of Iowa’s top wrestlers at the Schoolboy Duals where he went 15-1 on the week, and 8-0 in freestyle. Up next for both of the Iowans is the freestyle tournament which will start tomorrow morning at 9:00 AM.
