Three standout wrestlers from Tea showcased their skills at the 2024 Disney AAU Scholastic Duals, held in Fort Lauderdale, FL. Competing for Team South Dakota, the athletes left a mark at the event.

Tyler Woodring, wrestling at 126lbs for South Dakota Blue in the All-Star division, delivered an outstanding performance. Team SD Blue finished the weekend with a 6-5 record, securing ninth place overall. Woodring’s impressive 8-2 record earned him All-American Bronze status. His notable victories included multiple falls and a technical fall, demonstrating his dominance on the mat. Key victories included: Fall over Richard Flores (Foxfire Wrestling Club) in 1:05; Fall over Hayden Schmit (Capitian Nebraska (A team)) in 2:15; Fall over Solomon Randall (Team Diamond Fish Pink) in 0:18; Technical fall over Richard Flores (Foxfire Wrestling Club) 20-5; Fall over  Tanner Guenot (MAWA Blue) in 1:58; Fall over Kemon Downing (Carolina Extreme Black) in 0:34; Fall over Caleb Laclair (Head Hunters Wrestling Club) in 0:45; Fall over Luke Egan (Team Michigan Blue) in 2:18.

Despite two major decision losses, Woodring’s consistent performance earned him a well-deserved All-American Bronze status.

Slater Wilson competed at 120lbs for South Dakota White in the Developmental division. 

Team SD White finished the weekend with a 5-5 record, securing 2nd place in the Bronze bracket. Slater showed remarkable resilience, battling through a shoulder dislocation to achieve a 3-3 record, earning All-American Copper status. His victories included: Fall against Raiden Terry (Seneca Fighting Irish) in 0:31; Fall against Davian Mulkey (War Ready) in 0:52; Fall against Sebastiano Campanile (The Firemen) in 2:45

Wilson’s determination and success on the mat were commendable despite his injury and three losses. He suffered three losses in Duals, one by decision, one technical fall and won by major decision. 

Henry Fortin also competed, wrestling at 113lbs for South Dakota Red in the Developmental division. Team SD Red concluded the weekend with a 6-5 record, finishing 10th in the Silver bracket. Fortin faced significant challenges, injuring his shoulder in his first match and struggling to recover. Unfortunately, he ended the weekend with a 0-3 record due to injuries, falling to: Aden Breniser (S.E.O. Wrestling Club - Team White) by injury in 0:12, Covyn Shelton (Indy Elite) by injury in 0:33, and Charles Crowson (Team Montana) by injury in 0:48

Despite the setbacks, Fortin’s participation and effort were a testament to his courage and determination.
