Steven Lahnert will be wrestling at Chadron State starting in the fall. Steven was a 4-Time Placer and Wyoming State Champion while wrestling at East High School. He is planning on wrestling 149lbs for the Eagles!

Folkstyle State Champions!

Congratulations to these amazing young athletes! I know that they all feel like they had a rough weekend, but they worked together as a team and supported each other through every battle, celebrated every victory, and they picked each other up after each loss!braves-champs

Team Braves Wrestling Club won the WAWA Small Team State Folkstyle Championship! They would not have won without the help of all the officials that worked on our behalf. Thanks to Damien for being a mat official and Coach Zach for serving on the WAWA Board of Directors. We would also like to thank our pairing officials Tiffany, Justin, and Amy!

It was announced wrong during the event and as such we have agreed to be named Co-Champions this year with High Plains Thunder, since we did not want to take the positive experience away from those kids!

Congratulations!

Four High School State Champions!

4 Champs

Left to Right: Daniel Hammond, Tevis Bartlett, Nathan Parris, Ryder Jones

We are very proud of the four young men in the picture at the top of this article. Those four wrestlers from Cheyenne’s three high schools are the only four from Cheyenne to win state titles this year, and they all have a couple of things in common. The first thing that I want to point out that they all have in common is that they all started wrestling well before they were in  high school. Another thing that they have in common is that they have all put in a ton of hard work, blood, sweat and even some tears to achieve what they have. These four young men also all happen to have wrestled for Team Braves at some point when they were younger.

It is not the intention of Team Braves to take any credit for the accomplishments of the athletes, they all have great coaches at their high schools and they all also happen to have very dedicated parents who have provided massive amounts of love and support, as well as all the opportunities these guys could handle.
