Chandler Rogers Honored

FARGO, N.D. -- Chandler Rogers was recently honored as the Cadet Greco-Roman Wrestler of the Year. On Monday, Rogers showed why by dominating his competition at 170 pounds en route to winning his second straight Cadet National Greco-Roman title in Fargo. Rogers was one of 17 Cadet National Greco-Roman champions crowned on Monday at the FARGODOME.

The 16-year-old Rogers, a Cadet World Team member this year, wasted little in the finals, throwing his friend and fellow Washington wrestler Ryan Christensen to his back and picking up a pin in 33 seconds. Rogers, a two-time state champion for Mead High School, posted a 9-0 record with five pins, one technical fall, and three decisions during the two-day Cadet National Greco-Roman competition.

"Greco is probably No. 1 on my list of my favorite styles of wrestling," said Rogers in a post-match interview. "Throwing is my favorite. I did it in the finals. I love to throw. You don't really get that opportunity in freestyle and folkstyle."

Rogers and California's Aaron Pico (132) were the only repeat champions in the Cadet National Greco-Roman competition.
