By Smitty, 07/25/18, 11:20AM EDT


Stevo Poulin - 100lbs - 3rd Place

Shenendehowa's Stevo Poulin is a Cadet All-American for the second straight year. After finishing 5th place in 2017, Poulin followed up his 2018 Fargo trip with a 3rd place finish going 6-1. Poulin came out of the gate strong outscoring his first 4 opponents 39-0.

Heading into the semi-finals against Jordan Williams of Oklahoma, Poulin was riding high in hopes to earning a berth into his first Cadet National finals. Williams would go on to defeat Poulin 8-6 en route to winning the 100lb weight class.

Stevo would cap off a mere dominant performance in the wrestlebacks by defeating Maryland's Richard Fedalen and Illinois's Abraham Hinrichsen by a duplicate 10-0 score. 

Anthony Noto - 113lbs - 5th Place

Section 5 stud and 2x New York State Champion Anthony Noto of Honeoye Falls-Lima was New York's 2nd Cadet freestyle all-american by finishing 5th place at 113lbs.

Noto breezed through his first 5 opponents with his toughest coming in the round of 16 against Carter Young of Oklahoma. A 12-6 decision followed by a 13-2 win in the quarterfinals catapulted Noto into the semi-finals. 

Anthony would find the same heart wrenching semi-final result as teammate Stevo Poulin, falling 6-5 to Colorado's Daniel Cardenas.

After dropping his next match 13-10, Noto found himself battling for 5th place against Zeke Seltzer of Indiana. Anthony would wrap up 5th place and an all-american finish with a dominant 12-2 win over Seltzer. 

Jake Null - 160lbs - 4th Place

Dolgeville's Jake Null would be New York's final Cadet All-American in Freestyle. Null would finish in 4th place with an astounding 10-2 record. 

Jake would start off his tournament by blanking Jakob Sheets of Indiana before dropping his 2nd round match to All-American Branson Britten of Texas 10-5.

On the backside, Null would reel off an impressive 9 straight wins before dropping his consi-finals match to Wisconsin's Brady Spaeth 15-4 to finish in 4th place.

Dante Rigal - 106lbs - 7th Place

Johnson City's Dante Rigal was the only Cadet Greco All-American from New York. After finishing 4-2 in freestyle, Rigal was determined to have a better finish on the Greco side. 

Dante would cruise into the quarterfinals by outscoring his opponents 22-2. Unfortunately his run would end at the hands of eventual runner-up Kenneth Crosby 14-6.

The loss dropped Rigal into the blood round against Illinois's Tommy Curran. A 10-6 win locked up all-american status for the Section 4 star. After trading a loss and a win, Dante would finish in 7th place with a respectable 5-2 record.
