Team Illinois in Pursuit of Their Fifth Straight Cadet Freestyle Duals Title

Abe Assad, Cadet Duals

York, PA – Memorial Hall located at the York County Fairgrounds will be the site for the 2017 Cadet National Duals. The tournament is scheduled to begin with preliminary rounds on Friday, June 16th with finals on Saturday, June 17th.

Team Illinois has been a power in this event as they have acquired four straight team championships. Last year, they were triumphant in defeating Pennsylvania Blue 40-34 in the finals, thanks in large part to Eddie Bolivar (120), Tyler Delaware (126), Will Lewan (138), and Baylor Fernandes (145), as they all earned technical falls against their Keystone opponents.

Illinois captured their first national championship in 2013 by defeating Pennsylvania Red 43-31, and the following year, 49-27. Team Ohio were the victims of the wrath of Team Illinois as they outwrestle them, 45-27, in 2015.
