    OVERALL, I WAS ENTERTAINED!

    The ILLINOIS Junior National Dual teams in Freestyle and Greco didn't finish in first place like we all wanted, but I was entertained. The main problem was an injury to Rocco Hayes. The team was looking incredible in the Greco pool during the first day of the tournament, then Rocco ran into a concussion problem against Iowa.

    If Hayes had been able to finish his match, I believe he would've won, and I also believe that that would've been enough to win the dual. Since Iowa won first place in Greco, you know where I think ILLINOIS could have finished.

    (There was also the uncalled Noah Tapia pin in that dual, but, hey, that only cost ILLINOIS a couple of points).

    After that dual, the team had to forfeit the weight in every match. That included every other match in the Greco Championship Gold-Silver pool, as well as every single match in Freestyle. Still, the team finished in the Championship pool in both Greco and Freestyle, earning a fifth place in Freestyle and a sixth-place finish in Greco.
