Five advance to finals, Illinois wraps up Cadet Greco team title

The tournament got a little tougher in this morning’s round, but Illinois did advance five to the finals of the Cadet National Greco-Roman tournament.

Trey Keeley (88), Austin Gomez (113), Logan Gruszka (145), Kamal Bey (170) and Allen Stallings (220) all advanced to championship matches.

Gomez, third in Class 3A this year at Glenbard North, trailed Michigan state champion Ben Freeman 2-0 after the first period, and needed a second-period throw to pull out a 4-2 victory.

Gomez is one of just two defending national champions in the finals. Bey will face the other, Beau Breske of Wisconsin, in what could be the feature match of the finals at 170. Breske was a double Cadet National champion last year.
Both were state champions in their respective states this year.

Illinois has an All-American in every weight class except 106, 1232 and 138, and has multiple All-Americans in seven weights.

In the team race, Illinois holds a 91-49 edge over Minnesota, which has 13 All-Americans. Wisconsin (42) will place 12. No other state has more than seven.
