USA Wrestling has announced that C.P. Schlatter of Westerville, Ohio, claimed the 2000 Championship Belt Series on the Cadet level. USA Wrestling will be naming the winners of USA Wrestling's four age-group levels this week. The top point scorer in the series on the Cadet, Junior, FILA Junior World and University levels receives a handsome plaque. The top 10 point scorers in each age level are recognized. Athletes only receive points on the specific age level where they compete. Points can not transfer from one age level to another age level. Cadet champion - C.P. Schlatter, Westerville, Ohio C.P. Schlatter of Westerville, Ohio won the Cadet level Championship Belt Series with 195 points, just five points ahead of archrival Chase Metcalf of Davison, Mich. Cadet wrestlers are 15- and 16-year-old athletes. Schlatter and Metcalf wrestled each other in the finals of both styles of the Cadet Nationals, and also in the bronze-medal match at the FILA Cadet Nationals in freestyle. Schlatter was the Cadet National freestyle champion and Cadet National Greco-Roman runner-up at 132 pounds. Schlatter won the FILA Cadet Nationals in Greco-Roman at 127.75 pounds and was named Outstanding Wrestler, and was third in the FILA Cadet Nationals in freestyle.

He was fourth in the FILA Cadet Nationals in freestyle and fifth in Greco-Roman. Metcalf was also the Central Regional freestyle champion. Metcalf is a junior at Davison High School. The Belt Series is based upon a point system, rewarding athletes for actual success in competition. Athletes who place in the major USA Wrestling events on the regional, national and international levels scored points in the series. Each event is weighed according to importance and difficulty, in order to determine the most successful wrestler during the season. A wrestler also receives points for receiving the Most Outstanding Wrestler award and Most Falls award at the events. On the age group levels, points scored in both freestyle and Greco-Roman are combined for the final standings. The Belt Series was created in 1990 to recognize America's most successful age-group athletes. Among the past age-group Belt Series winners are 2000 Olympic Champion Brandon Slay, 1999 World Champion Stephen Neal, 1998 World Champion and 2000 Olympic silver medalist Sammie Henson, 2000 Olympic silver medalist Matt Lindland and 1996 Olympic silver medalist Brandon Paulson.
