St. Edward Grapplers Win Big, More Work Ahead

The Eagles took first at the Clash Tournament last weekend; but they've still got plenty of work to do this season.

Last weekend, wrestlers traveled to Minnesota took on some of the best programs in the country for the Clash Tournament.

The Eagles made it look easy.

Heading into the tournament, ranked second in the country, the Eagles took first place, knocking off the sixth-ranked team in the country grab the title.

That was after beating the fourth and fifth best teams in the nation.

The Eagles started the tournament last Friday beating two teams — one from Georgia and another from Hawaii — by a combined score of 124-6.

“They were pretty tough teams,” said coach .

Day Two was even tougher. The Eagles knocked off nationally ranked opponents Clovis (CA) and Brandon (FL) high schools, before beating Apple Valley High School (MN) for the championship.

Ty Walz, a senior 220-pounder, brought home All-Tournament honors after going undefeated (6-0) in the tournament.

“He had a heck of a tournament,” Urbas said. 

Urbas isn’t spending too much time resting on the team’s last big win. There’s still plenty of work left this season.

“It’s basically the past tense,” he said. “We’ve got our hands full this week with Ohio duels.”

This weekend, the grapplers will head to Wadsworth, where they will square off with some of the top teams in the state — as well as nationally ranked teams.

“We’ve got our hands full,” Urbas said.
