Four Golden Eagles Claim National Titles

January 3rd, 2018 (Highlands Ranch, CO)----Several Golden Eagle wrestlers competed at Who’s Bad National Classic Saturday, December 30th to close out 2017. They took 26 wrestlers and this was the first time they walked home with some champions. Last year, they had 9 wrestlers compete and only one placed. In fact, two of their champions did not win a match at this tournament a year ago.

There were 1100 wrestlers and 535 teams competing from 26 different states. The Golden Eagles scored 107 team points coming in 4th place overall. We were a few points shy of placing 3rd overall. and 10 points away from taking first place. The Golden Eagles  outscored some of the countries top teams including Duran Elite & Sons of Thunder.

Coach McDoniel could not be more proud how their wrestlers competed. "This is a very difficult tournament that helps our wrestlers prepare for the state and national championships in March, 2018. We walked home with four, champion titles but we had several team members place which is a great accomplishment" says McDoniel.  Henry McDoniel went 6-0 on the day claiming double titles at 61 lbs and HWT. Cooper Torpy won his first national title after coming in 2nd at Monster Match Nationals. Jaden McGowan repeated as a champion from Monster Match Nationals as well. This is the first of three consecutive weekends of national tournament competition. A small number of Golden Eagles are headed to California on January 4th to compete at USA Showcase Nationals in Anaheim. They return to Colorado to conclude their tournament tour at Big Horn Nationals on January 13th.
