2018 Super 32: Top 5 Lightweights

The 2018 Super 32 Challenge is just a few weeks away. In anticipation of one of the best youth wrestling tournaments of the season, we are going to take a look at some of the top youth wrestlers who are registered to compete in this years event.


In the first of a three part series, we take a look at some of the top lightweight wrestlers who are set to compete in the 2018 Super 32 Challenge.


Vince Bouzakis




Bouzakis figures to be one of the top youth wrestlers in the country this year and with good reason. The 6th grader has already built up a solid resume and will look at add to that at the end of the month when he competes in the 75-pound bracket. He already owns two Super 32 championships and will look to nab his third in a few short weeks.


Nikolaus O’Neill




O’Neill is a defending Super 32 champion as he captured last year’s 70-pound middle school championship. There is a good chance that we’ll see two defending champions battling it out for this year’s title as O’Neill and Bouzakis will be two of the favorites to make deep runs.


Kale Petersen




The Iowa Triple Crown winner is another defending Super 32 champion who will once again be a strong contender to defend his championship. Petersen will be joined by defending elementary champion Tahir Parkins from Pennsylvania.


Braeden Davis




Davis, a Michigan standout, will look to once again stand atop the Super 32 podium. He’s a prior Super 32 Elementary School Champion  who took home a silver medal last year in the 75-pound middle school bracket. He should make a deep run at this year’s title as he’ll be joined by Elementary Super 32 champion PJ Duke from New York and Alessandro Nini from New Jersey.

Dylan Gilcher




Gilcher already owns an Elementary Super 32 championship and a 2017 Middle School Super 32 bronze medal. He’ll look to find his way back to the top of the podium as he’ll compete in this year’s 90-pound weight class. The Michigan State Champion will have to get past 2017 silver medalist James Wells from California and bronze medalist Bryce Luna from California.
