Two Mustangs Earn Gold at Pan Am Cadets

Some of the best Cadet (age 15-17) wrestlers in the country competed in the Pan American freestyle and Greco-Roman tournament this past weekend hosted in Guadalajara, Mexico. The US had a strong showing with 7 gold medalists. Among the gold medalist were two Ponderosa Mustangs; Mosha Schwartz and Cohlton Schultz. These young men, who will be freshman in the upcoming 2015-2016, have too many credentials to list and will continue to grow as Mustangs. Watch out for these two, as well as many other Mustangs that have their eyes on gold! The following link details the finals matches of the Pan Am tournament.
