Fargo Day 5: Cadet freestyle quarterfinals set

InterMat Staff

The opening day of the Cadet National freestyle tournament narrowed the field down to the quarterfinals in each weight class, and that round will take place starting at 9:30 a.m. CT on Thursday morning. In weight classes 88 to 120, there are 16 total wrestlers in the field; while for 126 pounds on up, there are 24 total wrestlers remaining. Quarterfinalists have to win one match to earn an All-American finish, while wrestlers in consolation have to win either the next two or three matches.

All three wrestlers eligible for a Cadet Triple Crown after the Greco-Roman leg advanced to the quarterfinals. None of the three -- Jaden Enriquez (California) at 126, Beau Breske (Wisconsin) at 170, or Keegan Moore (Minnesota) at 182 -- should be tested in their quarterfinal bout.

The biggest shock of the night took place in the round of 16 where the nation's No. 2 ranked Class of 2017 prospect, Brady Berge (Minnesota) was pinned by Cadet Greco-Roman champion Matthew Park (Idaho) in under one minute at 145 pounds.

The other staggering note is that Illinois has quarterfinalists in 15 of the 17 weight classes, and 20 in all. Next in line is Pennsylvania with 13 in the quarterfinals, Ohio with 9 in the quarters, Missouri with 8, with Indiana and New Jersey at 7 each. Given that quality, one can see how they absolutely torched the field at the Cadet Duals last month in Daytona Beach.
