Quality the theme, rather than quantity

Things are a little bit different for Team Illinois after the first day of the Cadet National freestyle tournament.

We're not going into the second day with nearly 30 wrestlers still alive, as was the case in the Junior Greco-Roman meet. In fact, we'll only take about half that number into Thursday's matches.

Only 16 Illinois wrestlers remain alive. But 11 of those 16 are still undefeated.

The big weights wrestled six rounds today. By the time we finish tomorrow night's Cadet competition, we'll know who's wrestling for first, third, fifth and seventh place. Only the finals and medal matches will remain.

Late eliminations included Colton Gladwell (135) and Troy Valdez (140), each with four wins, and Jordan Laster (98), Zach Synon (119), Nick Ruffino (135) and Zach Epker (171), who each won three.

Although he's eliminated from pool competition, Carlos Fuentes will add to Illinois' All-American total. He'll be going for seventh place.

Here's the rundown on the remaining wrestlers:

84 – Carlos Fuentes, 1-2 (going for seventh place)
105 – Mark Duda, 5-1; Sebastian Pique, 5-0
112 – Jered Cortez, 6-0; Barlow McGhee, 5-1
119 – Bryce Brill, 6-0; George Fisher, 4-1
125 – Ben Whitford, 6-0
130 – Zane Richards, 6-0
135 – Angelo Silvestro, 5-0
140 – Brian Murphy, 6-0
152 – Tim Corse, 5-1
171 – Sam Brooks, 5-0; Jack Dechow, 5-0; Joey Dedick, 4-1
189 – Brad Johnson, 4-0
215 – Taylor McGiffen, 4-0

The Junior National freestyle tournament also begins tomorrow morning.
