Wolbert pin delivers men’s freestyle title to Wisconsin at AFSW Junior National Duals

TULSA, Okla. – No. 1 overall seed Wisconsin completed its journey to the top of the podium at the Air Force Special Warfare Junior National Duals with a heart-pounding, 33-32, victory over Ohio Blue in the championship dual.

Trailing by four points entering the last match of the meet, Wales, Wis. native Kellen Wolbert delivered the knockout blow for the Badger State squad by pinning Khimari Manns of Ohio in 52-seconds. Wolbert countered a Manns double leg attempt with a head pinch and iced it with a cow catcher—a fitting end for a sensational Wisconsin run in Tulsa.

Wolbert, a U17 World Team Trials runner-up and 2022 16U Nationals champion, came to the mat immediately following Ohio’s headliner Marcus Blaze, who pushed Ohio’s lead to four with a 12-2 technical fall over Lucas Peters at 132 pounds. Blaze is a 2023 U17 World champion and 2024 U.S. Senior National Team member.

Wisconsin went on a powerful run with five straight wins from 165 pounds through heavyweight to take control of the dual, 23-11. U20 World Team Trials challenge tournament finalist Charlie Millard (165), 16U Nationals All-American Jake Stoffel (175), 2023 U17 World Team member Aeoden Sinclair (190), 2023 Junior Nationals runner-up Cole Mirasola (215) and 2022 U17 World champion Koy Hopke (285) were the key contributors to this strength area of the Wisconsin lineup.

Also picking up critical wins for Wisconsin were Co’ji Campbell and Tyson Peach. Campbell took an action-packed, 14-8, match from Adam Mattin at 120 pounds, while Peach came out with a 12-6 win over Adam Butler at 144 pounds.

Ohio nearly rebounded throughout the back half of the dual meet with five wins in the final seven matches. During this stretch, Braedyn Tammarine earned a pin, Ayden Dodd, Grey Burnett and Blaze secured technical falls, and Karson Brown logged a decision.

Wisconsin finished with a 7-0 record on its way to first place. It had five wrestlers in its championship lineup go undefeated throughout the event—Wolbert (7-0), Millard (7-0), Sinclair (7-0), Mirasola (6-0) and Hopke (7-0).


Finishing in third place was Pennsylvania, who defeated Minnesota Blue, 39-25, in its placement dual. 2023 U17 World Team member Adam Waters, 2023 Junior Nationals champion Vince Bouzakis, 2023 Junior Nationals runner-up Aaron Seidel and perennial top performer Pierson Manville all scored shutout wins for Pennsylvania. Manville completed an impressive four-year undefeated stretch at the Junior Duals.

Illinois reversed a day one loss to Iowa in the fifth place dual with a 34-30 victory. Illinois captured wins in six of the final seven matches to fight back for the win.

Rounding out the Gold/Silver bracket results are California Blue and Oklahoma Blue, who finished in seventh and eighth place overall. The California crew took it by 12 points over the team with home mat advantage.

31 more teams battled it out for bragging rights in the Bronze/Copper, Red/Blue, Yellow/Green and Purple brackets on Saturday at the Cox Business Convention Center. Final placements for every color pool are listed below.
