Posted

Middleburg High wrestler Cheyenne Cruce finished as the first All American wrestler for the Lady Broncos with a fourth place finish at the mecca of wrestling; Fargo, ND, at the 2022 U.S. Marine Corps 16U and Junior National Championships.

Cruce, at 200 pounds, finished fourth in her weight class with wins of 12-2, 12-8 and 10-1 to earn a spot in the third place championship match where she lost a 6-2 match to finish fourth.

“My first ever All American, the first for Middleburg High wrestling,” said Middleburg coach Coll Robertson. “Cheyenne and the other girls wrestled for Team Florida.”

From Oakleaf Junior High, eighth graders Kailani Barrientos and Jayla Harrison also both wrestled at the Fargo Womens Nationals in Fargo, ND, with Barrientos, at 122, winning 10-7 in the opening rounds of the championship bracket, but losing in round two 3-1. Barrientos won 6-0 in the second round of consolations, but lost 4-2 in the round of 16. Harrison lost 10-0 in the round of 32, had a bye in consolations then lost a tough 7-6 in round two of consolations.

The Florida contingency will be joined by Orange Park High state champion Andrea Smith for more national wrestling next week.
