Even two days after the conclusion of the Walsh Ironman, there is still plenty to unpack from an incredible tournament. The tournament is billed as the top high school event in the regular season and lived up to its name. There was a dominant team in Wyoming Seminary, an all-time great at the tournament wrapping his Ironman career up (Braxton Amos), and plenty of upsets. Also, there are wrestlers that improved their stock over the weekend and make themselves household names for high school wrestling fans. That is who we are focusing on today, five competitors that had breakout tournaments. While some of these athletes have national credentials behind their name, none are currently ranked and have ever won or placed highly at a tournament with as much prestige as the Ironman. Not all of these wrestlers won their respective weight class, but they did enough to catch our eye and the eyes of fans around the country, not to mention the slew of DI coaches that were on hand, as well. Here are the five breakout performances from the 2019 Walsh Ironman.
