Fargo Cadet Greco-Roman Session I Recap

The first session of Greco-Roman wrestling is officially in the books at the Fargo national tournament, and it was a rough round, as a few of the Iowa heavy hitters were knocked to the backside of their brackets early. Team Iowa does still has quite a few alive who will be going for a national title, but after the first session there is still a lot of work to be done.

The biggest surprise might be the fact that returning Greco runner-up Anthony Sherry was knocked to the backside his very first match in the 160 pound bracket. His late match comeback was a point too few to get the win, but he did however respond with a fall in his first consolation match and then added a technical fall in the next match. He will have a long road back to the stand.

Alex Thomsen (120) has looked every bit as good as advertised as he is 3-0 on the day. He’s won two matches by technical fall, and a third by caution disqualification. As mentioned in our Cadet preview, Thomsen is one of the best Cadets Iowa has to offer and remains a threat to double AA.

Aden Reeves (106), Keaton Geerts(126), Lucas Roland(138), Jacob Dykes (170), Kaleb Reeves (182), and Bryce Esmoil (195) also all remain alive and in the hunt for a national title. Both HWTs Spencer Trenary and Cooper Lawson have not yet wrestled a match. A total of 19 Iowa native wrestlers remain alive and in the hunt for an All-American honor and action will be back underway for this afternoon’s session at 3:00 PM.
