OWA Wrestlers Compete Hard at National Elementary Duals
The 2016-17 post-season continued for several members of OWA as they had the opportunity to compete at the 2017 NHSCA National Elementary Duals in Virginia Beach, VA on May 27th and 28th with the Hornets Wrestling Club - Elementary team.
Though the team added a few great wrestlers from outside of OWA, including Oxford High School legend Nate Burroughs' son Myles, the majority of the team was made up of our community's kids. OWA members included Jaxon McKinney, Reiland Canaday, Gavin Seaman, Tyler Maiers, Jeremy McKinney, Marek Seaman, and Nathan Vance.
All of the young men battled hard against the nation's best, including teams from Ohio, Pennsylvania,Texas, New Jersey, and other top states. For the event, the HWC elementary team finished with a record of 3-3, while gaining some awesome wrestling experience against top kids.
Additionally, Oxford Junior High wrestlers Ben Smith, Landon Meredith, Cannon Hershey, Danny Cox and Cooper Johnson competed for HWC in the Middle School Duals.
Thanks to coaches Seaman, Maiers, McKinney, Canaday, Burroughs, and Vance for making the event memorable for our wrestlers.
