AVON – Washington High School freshman wrestler Brady Byrd won the Freestyle/Greco Roman ISWA events in his weight class over the weekend, as ISWA State was hosted by Avon High School over two days. Freestyle and Greco Roman are the styles of wrestling you have at the Olympics.
Byrd won ISWA freestyle state champion cadet 94 lbs. class and now has the opportunity to be one of 17 wrestlers to represent Team Indiana at Fargo Nationals in North Dakota in July to compete for a national title. On Sunday he won the Greco Roman division as well, outscoring his opponents 30-1 on the day. He will wrestle both styles in Fargo against the 49 other states champions at 16u 94 lbs.
