El Dorado Hills Wrestling Club wrestlers brought home the trophies from the Dave Shultz Freestyle State Tournament at Selland Arena in Fresno earlier this month.

First-grader Christian Pebley wrestled seven times and came home with a well earned 5th place medal. Second-grader Kenyen Middleton placed 4th, third-grader Brody Deatherage placed 3rd, third-grader Scotty Moore place 1st, fifth-grader Kaden West place 5th, eighth-grader Logan Apple placed 4th and Zane Roeder, Kade Roeder and Mikey Mello wrestled well but did not make it to medal rounds.

This week EDHWC coaches are taking a group of wrestlers for a 14-day trip to USA Wrestling Western Regionals in Pocatelo, Idaho, and then to USA Freestyle & Greco Nationals in Orem, Utah.

The wrestlers had to qualify for these tournaments by placing at the state tournament they will compete in two styles of wrestling: freestyle and greco.

EDH Wrestling is now accepting registrations for its Summer Technique Camp taking place in July 8-12. Kyle West, an EDH Wrestling Club alum and current Menlo College wrestler, will run the camp. For more information or to register visit EDHwrestling.com
