Golden Eagles come home with 5 Champions and One Most Valuable Wrestler!

January 17th---(Highlands Ranch, CO): Golden Eagle Wrestling Club (GEWC) took 15 wrestlers to Big Horn Nationals in Broomfield, CO on January 13th, 2018. This was a much smaller national tournament compared to other national tournaments. However, the competition was great. There were kids from Washington, California, Montana, Alaska, Nebraska, Kansas, Utah, South Dakota, Georgia, and Colorado.

"This tournament reminded me of Spring Wrestling Season with smaller numbers but top competition" said Coach Scott McDoniel. We saw many of the same kids we see in Greco-Roman and Freestyle Wrestling. The boys won some tough matches which indicate we can compete with some of the best wrestlers.

Henry McDoniel, Jack McDoniel, Gage Friedrichs, and Noah Gottberg claimed double titles on the day with wrestling in multiple brackets. Friedrichs was awarded Tournament Most Valuable Wrestler by demonstrating competitive risk and great sportsmanship.

Below is a list of the tournament results.
