Nick Lee finishes 2nd in FILA Cadet World Trials

Recommended Posts

I'm sure he was hoping for the win but still a great finish against some tough national competition. 

 

58KG - Carter Happel, IA dec. Nick Lee, IN, 12-7

Great job by Nick, C. Happel is the Number #1 ranked Soph in the country.

 

Happel is extremely talented and should be considered among the top Sophomores in the country.  However,if you mean overall Sophomore I'm not sure I would put him ahead of Pico (though he should be a Jr.), Hall (though he should be a Jr.), Manville (an actual So.) just yet.

one could also put Nick Suriano and Luke Fletcher, both sophomores I believe

Nick doesn't wrestle Hall, Manville, etc. I was referring to his weight class.  ;) I should have clarified.

 

WRESTLINGUSA Mag rated Carter Happel #1 Sophomore in the nation at 132lbs.

 

Suffice it to say, he's very tough.

That's the toughest call to make, the "in on a shot and the opponent body locks and tucks for a roll". I understand that the defensive wrestler has to "stop the momentum" of the attacking wrestler but it's much easier explained than judged during a match. Personally, I thought Nick initiated the move, stopped the momentum, and tucked for the turn but Happel gets 4 out of it.

 

Freestyle is so tough to officiate at times.
