The Last Stand

Results

~Jacob Crosson ~ Tot 41 lbs. ~

Jacob showed huge signs of improvement in his second wrestling tournament ever!  He is amazingly aggressive and always has a smile..:going 2-2 on the weekend earned him a 3rd place showing!

~Ashton Luna ~ Tot 44 lbs. ~

Ashton is a high energy guy...and it shows is basically everything he does.   Especially wrestling.  In his first tournament ever, Ashton marched to a second place finish showing third period dominance that is hard to find in 5 year olds.    

~Nienna Linder ~ Tot 44 lbs. ~

In her debut performance, Nienna “Sister” showed poise and wrestling IQ that is incredibly mature for a 5 year old competitor.   She maintains a great attitude even though it’s quite obvious losing doesn’t sit well with her.   3rd place in her first competition is a jumping board to future brilliance!   

~Jay Ybarro ~ Tot HWT ~ 

Jay is probably one of the biggest characters you can find.  He is soaking in wrestling and shows understanding...as a young Tot in the heavyweight field...Jay is learning with every match.   He placed third in his first tournament...and his demeanor and character are his greatest weapon.   Before the tournament even began, Jay lost a tooth and made sure everyone he saw knew 

~Anthony Arias~ D1 60 lbs.~

Anthony bombed his way to a second place finish in what was an all Vici final.   Anthony doesn’t seem to get tired or quit which are going to be his biggest strengths.   

~Vince Stevens ~ D1 60 lbs.~

Vince is a good wrestler and constantly improves his versatility.  With great position, handfighting and top wrestling Vince showed his wrestling off very well with a first place finish on the weekend.  

~Ezekiel Amonette~ D1 65-72 ~ Rookie 

Zeke had a huge weekend.  He placed first in the rookie bracket and showed some heart by placing third in the open bracket.   Zeke is big, strong and athletic.  The more he developed great wrestling habits the more he will pull away from his weight class.   

~Ayrton Linder~ D1 Heavy ~ Rookie 

Ayrton won both brackets.   Open and Rookie heavy weight has a new King...his name is Ayrton and the dude can wrestle!  

~Felix Morales~ D2 49-52 lbs~

Felix is good.   Really good.  He spent less than three minutes on the mat this weekend and secured 3 pins.   His pin total lead the team and he also scored more team points than any other vici wrestler this weekend.   

~Luke Yamokoski ~ D2 49-52 lbs~ Rookie

Luke showed immense stamina in his first tournament ever.   He made it to the finals of the open bracket battling one of his Vici teams on the championships.   He also really fought hard in the rookie bracket earning a silver medal in both brackets.  

~Jimmy Arias~ D2 61-65 lbs ~

Placing third isn’t where Jimmy should be.  He has the fight of the champion and when he dials in some details he is going to smash everyone in his bracket...why?  Because he fights like a savage Wolverine.    There is no stop.   

~ Caleb Crosson ~ D2 70 lbs. ~ Rookie

Caleb Crosson took second place in the rookie bracket and fourth place in the open group.   Although he took second in rookie, caleb was winning the match by 14 points before a slight mistake cost him the match.   The positive is, Caleb is smiling and competing.  Every week he understands more and more!   

~ Owen Smith ~ D2 100 lbs. ~ 

Owen is a hammer.   He is really gaining confidence in competition at the same time as really showing crisp technique.   He took 1st place this weekend with very strong showing in all of his bouts.   

~Aquilles Morales~ D3 56-60-65~

Aquilles wrestles up 3 weight classes and took second, losing in overtime in the finals.   He is quick and scrambles like none other.   At his own weight I don’t know who will be able to hang with him! 

~Hunter Anderson~ D3 75~

Hunter fights hard in all of his matches.   Do to an unfortunate turn of events in his first match, Hunter suffered a loss that truly was his to win.   With some small skill development on top he will be too much for his opponents to handle.   

~Tristan Forsman ~ D3 90~ D4 98 ~

Tristan showed excellent top wrestling to coast to the gold medal in his own age group. He also showed fight in the D4 group, battling older bigger wrestlers to a fourth place close.   

~Ava Stevens ~ D3 90 and Girls 80-90~

Ava smoked the girls bracket ending with 2 falls and a first place finish.  In the Guys bracket she ended in 5th place and really showed tenacity getting a win by pin.   

~Chris Foster ~ D4 75-80~

Chris continues to improve and develop his game on his feet and in finishing attack positions.   A 3rd place showing is pretty good but he is never satisfied and always asks question...that is huge and this bracket will belong go him soon!

~Jaedyn Keesler ~ D4 106~

Jaedyn works super hard and when he turns it on...he can put together chains of wrestling that score lots of points.   He battled his way to a third place showing. 

~Avery Beckman~ D4 150 lbs ~

As we have come to expect, Avery put a beat down on all of the girls in here bracket.   She also showed grit in a thought boys bracket ending the day in 5th place.  

~Grant Bahnsen ~ D4 175 lbs~

Grant is growing into his size and always gaining perspective on his own positions.  Probably not where he wants to be in this bracket but he will mature and his fourth place finish this weekend will be a first place finish soon.  

~Tony Armstrong ~ D6 132-140

Tony took second place losing in the finals to a very tough opponent.  Once Tony gets his handfight game dialed in, his quickness and athletic ability will really come into play.    The upside is huge for this sophomore.
