Three area wrestlers earlier this month competed in the 2013 USAW Cadet Greco Nationals in Fargo, N.D.
From Clay-Chalkville competing at the national competition were rising senior Nick Weldon and rising sophomore Austin Weldon. Hewitt-Trussville rising sophomore Davis Perry also competed in the event.
Nick Weldon won the 160-pound weight division at the Class 6A state championships earlier this year. Clay-Chalkville finished 19th as a team. He also was named an All-American at the National High School Coaches Association Nationals in Virginia Beach, Va., earlier this year. He placed fifth place nationwide in the 160-pound weight class in the junior nationals.
Perry, who finished in fifth place in the 138-pound division at the Class 6A championships for a Hewitt-Trussville team that placed third overall, also participated at the National High School Coaches Association Nationals in Virginia earlier this year.
Austin Weldon competed at this month’s nationals in the 145-pound weight class.
