Ken Wunderley profiles the quartet of Canon-McMillan wrestlers who competed in the USA Wrestling Cadet & Junior National Championships. Read his story below.
It's rare to see a high school represented by more than one wrestler at the USA Wrestling Cadet & Junior National Championships, which are held annually at North Dakota State University in Fargo.
Canon-McMillan was the exception to that unwritten rule at the Cadet National Championships, which concluded last week. The Big Macs had four entries in the freestyle tournament. Two of the four also competed in the Greco-Roman tournament.
"I can't remember the last time, if ever, Canon-McMillan had four wrestlers qualify for the trip to Fargo," Canon-McMillan coach Jason Cardillo said. "They all love to wrestle freestyle."
The foursome from Canon-McMillan are Logan Macri, Camden Fontenot, Blaze Kansco and Brendan Furman. Macri recently completed his freshman year. The other three are two-year starters who recently concluded their sophomore year.
