Now that the USMC Junior/16U Nationals have come to a close, let’s take a look at some of the final numbers. Today we’ll look at all of the double All-Americans from the tournament. For the boys, these wrestlers placed top-eight in both freestyle and Greco-Roman in their age group. For the girls, these wrestlers placed top-eight in both 16U and Juniors.

 

Although not on this list, Christian Forbes of Oklahoma placed sixth in 16U freestyle at 100 lbs. and then fourth in Junior Greco-Roman.

 

Despite not ranking first in 16U, Junior, or Women, Illinois was the most well rounded team as it pertains to double All-Americans. They lead the race with 12. California and Iowa round out the top three with 11 and 9 double All-Americans.

 

All in all, there were 67 wrestlers to double up in 16U, 40 in Junior, and 23 in Women. Including Forbes who doubled up across age divisions, that is a total of 130 double All-Americans.

 

 

 

 

 

Now, a list of all the individual double All-Americans in order of the most team points scored. In Fargo, team points are scored solely off of All-American finishes. A state receives eight points for a first place finish, seven points for a runner-up finish, and so on.

 

Only eight wrestlers scored the maximum amount of team points at 16. In the 16U division it was Jore Volk of Minnesota, John Whiley of Oklahoma, and Seth Shumate of Ohio. In the Junior division it was Andre Gonzales of California, Anthony Echemendia of Arizona, and Luke Luffman of Illinois. In the Women’s division it was Sage Mortimer of Utah and Kennedy Blades of Illinois.
