Team Wyoming Prepares for Big Fargo Wrestling Tournament [VIDEO]
After a year off due to the pandemic, the Fargo Junior and U16 National Tournament is back on and will be held July 17th through the 23rd at the Fargodome in North Dakota.
The Wyoming team will have 35 members this year with several reigning state champions. This is a freestyle and Greco-Roman tournament so the guys (and girls) will have to learn a few new techniques as opposed to the moves they used in folkstyle in the high school season.
The team is getting top-notch instruction in Greco Roman by Gillette's Tyler Cox who won a national championship as a cadet in the discipline. He is being assisted by Tate Allison and Cameron Braden of Moorcroft. The brackets in Fargo for freestyle and Greco are huge; some with close to 100 wrestlers. So many of these competitors can wrestle 2 or 3 times in an hour. Here's a list of the Team Wyoming members.
Sefton Douglass-Lyman (2021 3A State Champion)
