Who's he wrestling in Austin?

Even when you get skunked; fishing never lets you down. 🎣

They medically forfeited him in the other tourney a couple weeks ago after he won a couple of matches, presumably to keep him healthy.

Yeah that was planned. Get him some work and then shut it down.

BA isn't going either. According to social media he's been activated but he's facing #3 Will Lewan of Michigan on Tuesday. The NWCA All-Star Classic is stacked with talent.

I am still remarking of the brilliance of wrestling at the opera house.

This is going to be great for the ACC.

Well due to some commitments (Going to see the grandparents) I will not be able to provide updates tomorrow 😰

Ventresca over Flynn in the finals in rideouts by 1 second. I was hoping for SV2. Latona with a controlling win over a ranked opponent, love to see it. Henson guts out a 3-2 win for third. Ulrey gets gassed and falls to 6th.

I feel for Flynn. He was so close to getting over the Eddie V curse then he loses it with 2 seconds left 😰

That one really spoiled what was quite a good day. 125s continued to be strong. Latona looked his old self with quality wins. Gerardi was very offensive all day. Ulrey racked up some wins. Brady looked good and got some quality wins. Bolen looked mean and Fisher was sharp. Howard got some mat time, Stewart looked strong.

It's Time to go to Work

Tough one for Catka in SV against the Duke wrestler... but he'll get payback when they meet again in the regular ACC season
