Coon makes history in Fargo with another Triple Crown

7/22 - Adam Coon's career was already pretty historic,
but the 4x State Champ and University of Michigan
recruit put another cherry on top this weekend in Fargo
winning the Junior Freestyle National Title in dominant
fashion with a 26 second Tech-Fall in the 285lb Finals
over Nathan Butler of Kansas. 

The title made Coon a Triple Crown Winner, winning
Folkstyle, Greco, and Freestyle National titles and he
became the first wrestler in history to do so in back-to-
back years in the Junior Division.  

His Fargo finale was his most impressive showing yet
as the 2013 MIG Wrestler of The Year stormed through
the 285lb bracket, going 7-0 with 3 shutout tech-falls
and 4 first period falls.

6 other Michigan preps earned All-American status in
the loaded Junior Division - Dalton Roberts (100),
Camden Bertucci (113), Zac Hall (132), Logan Marcicki
(160), Andrew Garcia (170), and Payne Hayden (195).

Hayden, also a soon-to-be Wolverine for the University
of Michigan, finished 4th at 195lbs in his final Fargo
appearance with his two losses both coming to
Oklahomans.  The State Champ and GFC Champ was
fresh off a Junior Pan AmChampionhship a few days

Marcicki's 4th place finish was arguably the best
national showings of his career in terms of big time
wins.  His only pool loss was to eventual champ
Davonte Mahomes of IL and he scored big wins over
Iowa State Champ Tim Miklus, Arizona State Champ Seth Monty, Minnesota State Runner Up Paden Moore, and FILA Cadet All-American Chris Weiler of PA, who is ranked #15 in the country at 170lbs.

Dalton Roberts finished up a strong weekend with a 4th place finish, good for double All-American status after winning the Greco Title earlier in the week.  Roberts was 4-1 in his pool to advance to the 3rd place match.

St. Johns senior-to-be Zac Hall put together one of the best Fargo performances of all finishing 5th in one of the deepest, toughest weights in recent memory.  Hall rattled off his first 8 wins to advance to his pool round-robin at 132lbs including a 22-13 win over #2 ranked Hayden Tuma of Idaho.  His win over Tuma knocked the Greco National Champ out of the bracket, resulting in a DNP for the 2nd ranked wrestler in the country according to Flo.  In the round-robin, Hall lost a pair of nailbiters 12-11 to Gary Wayne Harding of Oklahoma (#13 at 138) and 8-6 to Kyle Gliva of Minnesota, dropping him into the 5th place match where he upended #13 ranked Jacob Rubio of Texas.

Also competing at 132lbs was 2x State Champ Cole Weaver of Hudson.  Weaver, a returning Cadet Freestyle Runner-Up from last year, scored a signature 11-9 win over #6 Seth Gross of Minnesota in a rematch of last year's final, however, Weaver was knocked off by #7 Fredy Stroker by score of 12-11 and failed to advance to the placing rounds.  Gross, who Weaver beat, went on a tear after his loss to Weaver and ended up winning the 132lb Championship.

2x State Champ Drew Garcia of DCC finished 7th in a loaded 170lb bracket.  After starting out 5-0, Garcia dropped his last two pool bouts to graduated Wyoming bound Zach Beard of Oklahoma, who finished this year ranked #1 in the country at 170lbs, and current #2 ranked Bo Nickal of Texas.  He scored a tech-fall in the finals to finish 7th.

Camden Bertucci added Junior All-American honors after earning Cadet Freestyle All-American honors last year.  Bertucci started out with 5 straight wins before losing eventual champ Elijiah Oliver of Tennessee and suffering an injury that withdrew him from the tournament.  He still locked up 4th place in the pool and finished 8th overall to earn All-American status.
