Wrestling

Jackson County Central junior Keegan Moore completed the USA Wrestling Triple Crown by beating Wayne Koelling of Utah 7-0 in the 182-pound championship match of the Cadet Freestyle Nationals in Fargo.

He had previously won national folkstyle and Greco Roman titles. In fact, he earned a narrow 6-5 win over Koelling for the Greco title earlier this week.

Moore didn't allow a point in going 5-0 to win the freestyle title, outscoring his opponents 52-0.

“This gives me great confidence, knowing the best guys in the country can’t score on me,” Moore told USA Wrestling.org. “Now I want to take the next step and make a World Team.”

Also in Cadets, Dalton Wagner was 1-2 at 126 and Ryker Vanderwoude was 2-2 at 138.

Luke Norland will wrestle for fifth at 170 pounds in the Junior Nationals on Saturday.

Paden Moore went 4-2 at Junior 160 and Jordan Biehn was 3-2 at 132.
