FARGO, N.D — One by one, the All-Americans dropped. Some completely out of the tournament, a few into the consolation bracket. After three sessions, 18 returning All-Americans advanced to the semifinals at the USMC Junior Freestyle Nationals in Fargo, North Dakota.


Of the 40 returning Junior All-Americans, 25 remain.


At 100, Hunter Stewart of Montana rolled in the quarterfinals with a pin over Hunter Mullarkey of New Jersey in the second period. Mullarkey went in on the legs several times but Stewart’s stingy leg defense avoided any points. Tyler Garvin of Maryland awaits Stewart in the semifinals.


A weight later, Idaho’s Kolter Burton cruised to the finals. Tuesday’s semifinals at 106 will be Idaho vs. Idaho. Burton will battle Dedrick Navarro of Idaho.


Seven returning All-Americans crowded into the 113 bracket. Now, three remain. Two of those three — Hunter Taylor of Missouri and Brandon Morvari of Minnesota - will scrap in the semifinals. Taylor won a national championship at 106 last summer.


All three returning All-Americans at 120 return to the semifinals. Braeden Davis, last year’s champion at 113 and a Penn State commit, draws his Team Michigan teammate, Caden Horwath in the semifinals. In the other semifinal, Alan Koehler of Minnesota who placed third at 113, gets Iowa’s Nate Jesuroga.


Kannon Webster of Illinois rolled to the semifinals at 132. He won last year’s 120 bracket.


Jude Swisher of Pennsylvania and Ty Whalen of New Jersey, both All-Americans a year ago, surged to the semifinals at 152. Three of four returning All-Americans at 160 stormed to the semifinals. Nicco Ruiz of California will battle Wisconsin’s Braeden Scoles in one of the weight’s semifinals.


Joshua Barr, the defending champion at 160, cruised to the semifinals at 170. In the other semifinal, Pennsylvania’s Rocco Welsh, secured a repeat of All-American status after he advanced to the semifinals. At 195, two highly touted incoming college freshman found their way to the semifinals. Idaho’s Rylan Rogers, a Michigan signee, made the semifinals after a 7-5 win over Kentucky’s Stephen Little. In the other semifinal, Iowa’s Wyatt Voelker, a future Northern Iowa Panther is a win away from the finals.


At 220, another Iowan, Kolby Franklin crushed his competition with a 100% bonus point rate in four matches en route to the semifinals.


The men’s Junior freestyle tournament continues Monday afternoon with the semifinals, consolations and consolation semifinals.
