We are extremely proud of our wrestlers for competing at the Colorado State Youth Wrestling Championships last weekend. Over the course of two days, The Golden Eagle Wrestling Club accomplished several major milestones. On Saturday, the Golden Eagle Wrestlers had 7 novice wrestlers compete and were able to redeem the prior tournament performance. It is great to see these boys put some much passion into their wrestling effort. When a wrestlers experiences defeat and they are upset that they are no longer able to continue wrestling for the day, it is a sign that they care and want to continue! When losing a match hurts then it is a good motivator to improve.

On Sunday, our team finished 3rd place out of 86 teams  (172 points) losing out to Grandview Wrestling Club, Top 5 Wrestling Club in the U.S., by 5 points. They were essentially two wins away in a championship consolation medal round match from securing second place overall.  This is their best finish ever in the open division of a state wrestling tournament. In addition, they claimed the team title for the 15U division and came in 4th place in the 6U division. By the end of the tournament, the Golden Eagle Wrestling Club had 4 state champions and 6 runner-ups. Having 10 wrestlers competing for a state title is a testament to how hard their wrestlers have been practicing and progressing this season.

Here are the results from the tournament.
