08 Junior Greco & Freestyle Nationals
The bracketing gods have not been good to our Woodinville wrestlers.

Dylan went 1-2 losing to the Joshua Castellano of Illinois, 08 Fila Cadet National Greco Champion and winner of the OW wrestler Award, in the 3rd round of wrestling to eliminate him from the Greco tournament (at the Western Junior Regional tournament Dylan was eliminated by the 07 Fila Cadet National Champ & OW recipient, Cole Schmitt-Dylan loves to draw those National Champions).

But, Kyle's draw was even worse. He wrestled David Klingsheim, out of California, in the first round and Lillashawn Coleman from Illinois, ranked 20th in the nation in the 3rd round.

Western Junior Regionals 08

Kyle Komata shined! In a tournament with the best wrestlers from around the country, Kyle brought home the 4th place medal in Freestyle and the 2nd place medal in Greco.  Kyle has arrived at the national level in Freestyle and Greco.  He's in the hunt to be a National All-American.  Go Kyle!!!! 

Dylan had another rough freestyle tournament.  Cole Schmitt from Wisconsin, a Fila Cadet Greco Roman National Champion and the recipient of the Fila Cadet Greco-Roman Outstanding Wrestler Award in 07, stopped Dylan in his tracks and eliminated him from the tournament. But, for Dylan this wasn't about placing, this was about getting some tough mat time.  Mission accomplished!  Between the two tournaments, he wrestled 7 tough kids.  You don't improve by wrestling the easy kids, only by taking it to the next level and wrestling the tough kids. Good Luck at Freestyle State!
