INDIANAPOLIS, Ind — The contenders are clear after the Greco-Roman preliminary pool competitions at the 14U National Duals in Indianapolis, Indiana.

In Pool B, Iowa stopped Utah, 43-35. Indiana Gold will represent the top spot from the C Pool thanks to a 46-33 win over Washington. In the D Pool, Pennsylvania blasted its competition and beat Tennessee, 47-33.

Only one pool held a true second place dual to decide the other spots in the eight-team Gold/Silver Pool. In the D Pool true second place dual, California’s upperweights overwhelmed Tennessee to win 46-34.
