Richardson attends Junior National Duals

Mitchell High School wrestler Ryan Richardson has been selected to represent North Carolina in the USMC/USA Wrestling Junior National Duals in Tulsa, Oklahoma. 

The team of top wrestlers from across the state attended a four-day training camp at Gardner-Webb University before traveling to Tulsa this past week for competition this week. 

Wrestlers compete in both Greco-Roman and Freestyle in the event. While in Oklahoma, the team visited the National Wrestling Hall of Fame in Stillwater. 

They also we treated to matside seats for the USA Greco-Roman National Team Trials, with winners moving on to the world championships later this year. 

Richardson is a rising senior at Mitchell, was captain of the wrestling team and is a reigning 2018 Western Highlands Conference Champion.
