The high school wrestling season is not necessarily over after the state meet.
Six Sheridan wrestlers competed at the National High School Athletic Coaches Association (NHSACA) folk style wrestling national championship tournament in Virginia Beach, Virginia.
Wrestlers compete against other wrestlers within their grade level (freshmen vs. freshmen, sophomores vs. sophomores, etc…), in an effort to place in the top 8, which wins them All-American status.
Congrats to Sheridan HS wrestlers Dane Steel and Kolten Powers for winning All-American status, after placing in the top 8 of their respective weight class and grade level.
Steel was 5th in the sophomore 145 pound weight class.
He had a record of 5-2 on the weekend, making it to the championship semi-finals, before dropping to the consolation bracket.
