Each year Washington produces some of the best wrestlers in the Nation, this year was no exception with honors of Double All-American Status at Schoolboy and Cadet National Duals while Juniors receive Greco All-American but fell just shy of Freestyle.  Washington Girl Dual won a National Title.  Washington USA Wrestling took 117 Athletes to compete in Fargo Nationals, crowning 5 National Champions and 37 All-Americans.  Here is a glimpse of what we deem the Top 25 Returning Wrestlers pound for pound looks like in Washington State.  Tied for 1 this year is 3x State Champion Brandon Kaylor from Bonney Lake, he is currently ranked 6th in the Nation by Flowrestling, a UWW World Team Member, Fargo National Champion and placed 1st in the Pan Am Championships in Peru, Lima and has commited to Oregon State University.  Mason Phillips from Stanwood is a 2x State Champion, Fargo National Champion, World Team Member, Super 32 Champion and currently nationally ranked 7th at 145 and have commited to North Carolina.  This will be an exciting season with such a large talent pool; certainly we will see some big upsets with such a fundamentality sound Freshman Class arriving on the scene... February will tell the tale in Tacoma!
