11:53am — Matt Tourdot closed out this year’s Senior Nationals with a victory by injury default over Kansas’ Kyle Caylor. His victory yesterday over New York’s Kyle Colling secured All-American honors for the second straight year. No Spartan has ever achieved high school All-American status before Tourdot and he has done it twice.
On the weekend, he was 5-2 and defeated the N0. 4 ranked wrestler in the country at 215 pounds in Colling. His two losses were very close–one came in overtime in the tiebreaker rounds and the other by two-points this morning. The kid he lost to by tiebreaker criteria in overtime is in the finals so Tourdot wrestled some tough competition and wrestled well.
Congrats to Matt on earning All-American honors!!
9:25am — Matt opened the day losing a close 4-2 match to Matt Loew from New York. He will now face Kyle Caylor, the 6A State champion from Kansas, and former Junior National Champion for 7th Place.
