Bassett, a junior, went undefeated at Tyrant Columbus Day Duals with a pair of notable wins. Overall, Bassett went 7-0 with three falls and a major decision. One of those major’s came in a 9-1 victory over Fargo U16 runner-up Nicholas Vafiadis of Virginia. Bassett also upended No. 16-ranked Jagger Condomitti 9-5. Condomitti is a returning fourth-place finisher in Pennsylvania’s AAA class and a Nebraska commit. His performance helped lift Team Nauman Purple to a second-place finish. Bassett, a two-time state qualifier, enters the new season with a ton of momentum and looking to reach the podium for the first time in Class AA.
