EDH wrestlers triumph at Fresno tourney

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
