Youth wrestlers medal at tournament last month

Rockford - Last Friday, 13 wrestlers from the SJO Youth Wrestling Club competed at the Bad Boys Open in Rockford. After facing quality competition from around the state, the squad came home with 14 medals from the 40-team meet.

Two wrestlers from the contingent won their division titles, adding gold medals to their growing collections. The squad also had four wrestlers finish second, third, and fourth in their division.

It is no surprise that Jack Gorman, son of former St. Joseph-Ogden High School 2x state-qualifier Ben Gorman, rolled through his three 6-8 bantam-weight matches to a gold medal. Finishing the day 3-0 after sticking all three of his opponents, Gorman's fastest pin was in 46 seconds.

Gormans's older brother, Chase, finished second in the 8-10 Intermediates with a 2-1 record. The highlight of his day was a 30-second pin over Harlem Huskies' Liam Slye.

In the Tots, 6 & Under division, Mason Krisman went 2-0, pinning both opponents to bring home gold for the SJO club.

Also representing SJO were Spencer Krisman, Eli Reed, Will Gallo, Brandon Jackson, Bentley Morse, Levi Lee, Kayelyn Lee, Kolten Fiedler, Carson Gallo, and Kaison Johnson.

The club team travels to Matton and Monticello this weekend for matches.
