Duran Wrestling placed 3rd at the New Mexico National tournament. The tournament was a full sold out event. Our wrestlers showed up ready and prepared to battle. We had 5 wrestlers make the finals and 3 wrestlers win national championships. Ryan Boutilier had an exceptional tournament has he dared to do two brackets. He won the 8u and earned a bronze medal in 10u. Giovanni Ramos won his third national championship of the year. Angel also earned his third championship of the year. Urijah Duran fell short in the championship earning a silver medal. jyruis Bensik was a true warrior as he battled back for second. Daniel Apodaca gave it a go and wrestled like a beast to earn his 4th place finish. Well Ian Diaz and Riley Atencio both wrestled hard to earn 6th place.
Jyruis did an amazing job this weekend. He would pin all of his opponents and have 5 wins on the day. He lost the first match of the day which we all know makes for a long day. He then came all the way back to win the wrestle off against some really good kids. Great Job Jyruis. Pride is what you have
