Nowry, Coleman, Rice, then Richards and Dardanes

The next Olympic Qualifier is coming up shortly. It all starts on Friday, December 20, as the Greco studs get their shot. This is the 2019 Senior Nationals, and it looks like it will be broadcast on FLO.

The next day, Saturday, December 21, you have the Freestyle. In Freestyle, the top 5 finishers who have already not qualified will get a golden ticket to the Olympic Trials in April. (At the link, there are links to the different rules and regulations for Freestyle and Greco.)

Greco also qualifies the top 5 finishers at this event for the Olympic Trials.

I just sent my Christmas gift to the IRTC at this link. Can you please help? These poor folks are starving! I am a little fish, but every little bit counts.

Here's a list of the 57kg competitors that I've actually heard of at the Senior Nationals (Olympic Qualifier):

57 kgs Vitali Arujau
57 kgs Cory Clark
57 kgs Nahshon Garrett
57 kgs Edward Klimara
57 kgs Shelton Mack
57 kgs Frank Perrelli
57 kgs Zane Richards
57 kgs Nathan Tomasello
57 kgs Zach Sanders
57 kgs Sean Russell
57 kgs Daniel DeShazer
57 kgs Spencer Lee
57 kgs Johnni DiJulius

That's an outstanding field. Zane will need to go on a tear so he can earn a top 5 spot and get an Olympic Trials bid. My holiday wish for Richards is that he have his weight under control and catch some of these guys while they're still logy.

These are the guys at 65kg who I'm acquainted with:

65 kgs Nicholas Dardanes
65 kgs Domonick Demas
65 kgs Yianni Diakomihalis
65 kgs Jaydin Eierman
65 kgs Sean Fausz
65 kgs Earl Hall
65 kgs Dean Heil
65 kgs Joseph McKenna
65 kgs Frank Molinaro
65 kgs Alec Pantaleo
65 kgs Joshua Saunders
65 kgs Ben Whitford
65 kgs Evan Henderson
65 kgs Colton McCrystal
65 kgs Jordan Oliver
65 kgs Joey Lazor
65 kgs Jayson Ness

That's a massive field with some studs in it. Dardanes just needs that top five. There'll be some guys pulling some big weight, so early morning rounds could be tough for them.

Just for fun, I wanted to rank the 74kg guys according to how I see them finishing:

74 kgs Thomas Gantt (first)
74 kgs Quinton Godley
74 kgs Nazar Kulchytskyy (second)
74 kgs Joey Lavallee
74 kgs Mekhi Lewis (fourth)
74 kgs Chance Marsteller (third)
74 kgs Evan Wick
74 kgs Deondre Wilson
74 kgs Trever Devestern
74 kgs Andrew Simmons
74 kgs Carson Kharchla
74 kgs Tyler Berger (fifth)
74 kgs Dylan Ness
74 kgs Josh Shields
74 kgs Anthony Valencia

It looks like Zane, Nick and Travis came up short this time. Richards had by far the toughest consolation quarters match. Wish he would've faced somebody else. There are still opportunities for these guys.

Nowry and Coleman are already qualified for the Olympic Trials and didn't need to show up.
