LAS VEGAS, Nev. – Redshirt freshman Killian Cardinale is set to compete in the UWW Junior Nationals in Las Vegas, Nev. on April 26-28. The UWW Freestyle Junior division is open to anyone who is born from 1998 to 2000. The top eight finishers qualify for the UWW Junior World Team Trials. This event showcases the best wrestlers around the country.

“This is a great opportunity for Killian to go compete and show what improvements he’s made since seasons end," said assistant coach Daryl Thomas. "The main goal is seeing improvement, him closing holes in his wrestling and qualifying for the world team trials. He works so hard and I’m just excited to watch him compete again this weekend.”

Cardinale will compete in the 57 kg weight class. This past season, Cardinale wrestled unattached in open tournaments and won the Hokie Open at the 125-pound weight class.
