By Dusty Skidmore, 07/17/17, 10:15PM MDT


The freestyle competition finished today for the remaining DTA members.  Kase Mauger finished with a dominating performance in the seventh place bout.  His opponent was Dyson Kunz from Nebraska.  Kase would open the match with two quick takedowns.  He followed the second takedown with a trapped-arm gut wrench for two more turns and a fall.  Kase finished the tournament as an All-American in 7th place.

Destin Summers also had a strong showing.  He opened up with a high scoring 20-9 victory over Virginia's Aaron Howell.  His second match was against Parker Mcbride from Washington.  After exchanging scoring opportunities and racking up a total of 20 points, Summers earned the victory by fall.  Next, Destin battled a tough opponent, Kai Orine from Missouri.  In a hard fought match, Summers would emerge victorious by a narrow margin, 10-8.  His final match would come in the "blood round". Winners of this round earn All-American status and place in the top eight in the country.  Summers battled well, but in the end was pinned by Nick Onea of Pennsylvania.
