So Braydon Thompson, a HS Jr and OSU Commit for the Class of 23 was the big talk of the tournament OSU wise. Because he had already qualified for U20 World Team Trials, he put it on the line against grown ass men in the Senior division and finished 6th. He is a top 25 overall guy in Class of 23 (and probably rising) and top at his weight class (170), but projects a little bigger in college (here he wrestled at what is 174.).

Jordan Oliver had himself a tournament as usual, and lost a close one to Alex Pantaleo, the 1 seed in a really close one. Jordan Williams looked about like we expect and he won a wild one with some great par terre defense in his 3rd place match for U20.

Dieringer was as disappointing as you can be (which isnt very) with 4 pins and a tech fall, only losing a TIGHT one to Vincenzo Joseph.

What does this mean for our Senior Guys? The Open is the second to last chance for most of them to qualify for the World Team Trials Challenge Tournament to try to make the World Team. We might see one or two of our guys at the last chance tournament in a couple of weeks. You qualify by finishing in the top 7, or having already qualified, so here is who is eligible now:

61 Kg: Carter Young
65 kg: Jordan Oliver (also at 70, where he is expected), Dean Heil
70 kg: Jordan Oliver
79 kg: Alex Dieringer, Braydon Thompson

And Daton Fix sitting at Final X waiting. Should be good stuff!

Daton Fix is in Final X at 61kg.

Probably won't see Carter. Don't think they want him cutting weight. Will probably see him at U23s at 65kg.

OK, so the World Team Trials Challenge Tournament is this weekend (starts 10 am CST Saturday on Flo). For a refresher (if you don't want to read above) the winner of the WTT moves on to Final X IF someone is already waiting there for them because they were awesome at last year's Olympics or World Tournament. What is Final X? It's a wrestle-off to see who makes the US world team and competes for a world title later this summer.

Anyway, here are the future, current and former Pokes still in play for the world team if they win WTT (or make the finals if someone isn't already waiting in Final X at their weight)

65 Kg: Dean Heil (10 seed)
65 Kg: Carter Young (12 seed)
70 kg: Jordan Oliver (3 seed)
79 kg: Brayden Thompson (9 seed)
79 kg: Chance Marsteller (5 seed, Do/can/should we claim Marsteller?)
79 kg: Alex Dieringer (3 seed)
125 kg: Derek White (11 seed)

I've got a killer weekend, especially with trying to keep up with the Cowgirls, but I'll try to keep y'all updated.

First round went pretty close according to seeds for the Pokes, except Derek White upset Kyven Gadsen. Carter Young was 2 and out, which was a little disappointing since he was really in both matches. Heil gets a tough draw in Consolations with one seed Maple being upset in his first match by Evan Henderson.
