Wilson Smith Enjoys Magical Run to Fargo Finals!

Wilson Smith stormed through his half of the Cadet 120 bracket over the past two days, with a pin and three tech falls on his way to the finals. He dominated the competition and earned a reputation as one of the most exciting wrestlers in the tournament.

Smith was ultimately decisioned in the national finals by Colten Williams of Texas in an close and exciting finals match. The finals started with a 4pt takedown by Wilson, but Williams countered with a 5 point throw and a 1 point turn to take a 6-4 lead at the period break.

Smith came out firing in the 2nd period, but Williams held off the assault and held on for a 8-5 victory.

Wilson is North Carolina's 2nd All-American in Fargo so far this year, and he will compete in Freestyle as well. Kayla Mesar also earned All-American status in the women's competition with her 8th place finish.
