Our Youth1 Wrestler of the Week Award goes to Jesse Mendez of Region Wrestling Academy in Indiana.
This past weekend Mendez completed his quest for an Indiana State Triple Crown as he captured both the ISWA Freestyle and Greco-Roman State Championship. Mendez, who is one of the top youth wrestlers in the country dominated his competition as he added two more goal medals to his resume.
Mendez posted a perfect record in the Greco event as he won both of his matches by tech-fall. He won the title with a 12-1 tech-fall over Jeivan Ross of Warren Wrestling Academy.
In the Freestyle portion of the event Mendez did much of the same as he won all three of his matches by tech-fall. He took home the gold with a dominating 14-4 tech-fall over Zeke Seltzer of Central Indiana Academy of Wrestling.
Mendez has put together a strong season as he not only owns an Indiana State Triple Crown but also a USA Wrestling Folkstyle National Championship and a Liberty Nationals title.
Congratulations to Jesse on earning Youth1 Wrestler of the Week honors and for winning his Indiana Triple Crown!
