One reply on “Deep South Nationals — K-8 Duals Day 2”

Just curious why you haven’t mentioned Alex Smith from Northern FL. He is from Yulee and wrestled at Deep South on Vanquish Orange. He went undefeated (8-0) during k-8 duals at 170. Then wrestled individuals both 13u and 16u. He got 1st place for 13u and came in second for 16u when he lost by one point (14th match of the weekend). He also wrestled at River Rumble in Oklahoma for TNT National Team where he earned all American and went 8-1 for the duals. He gave up 35 pounds in the match he lost. Alex is going into 8th grade at Yulee Middle and ranked 4th on trackwrestling’s top 100 elite athletes list.
