Michaela Beck and Kayla Miracle will be competing this weekend in Irving, TX. Beck will be going for a spot on the UWW Junior World Team and Miracle for the UWW U23 World Team.
The following weekend will be huge as several members of the HWC will be competing at the World Team Trials in Raleigh, NC. Thomas Gilman, Cory Clark, Brandon Sorensen, Sammy Brooks, Kayla Miracle, and Lauren Louive will be competing. The winner of the World Team Trials will then go to Final X. Forrest Molinari has already qualified for Final X in Piscataway, NJ on June 8 and Alli Ragan has qualified for Final X in Lincoln, NE on June 15. The winner of Final X will represent Team USA at the Senior World Freestyle Championships in Astana, Kazakhstan on August 14-22.
Anthony Cassioppi and Nelson Brands have qualified for the UWW Junior World Team Trials that will also be in Raleigh, NC on May 17-18. I have not heard of any additional Iowa wrestlers competing at this tournament or the U23 World Team Trials in Akron, OH on June 1-2.
As a fan of college wrestling recruiting, I cannot wait for the Cadet World Team Trials in Akron, OH on June 1-2. That single tournament will give you a look into the future of the NCAA finals and the Senior World and Olympic teams for the USA. I will keep you posted of any incoming recruits or what I would label as potential recruits that will be competing at the Cadet WTT.
I will do my best to keep you up to date with who is competing where and when and how they did for the HWC, Iowa wrestling, incoming recruits, and potential recruits.
