The Super 32 takes place in Greensboro, NC with wrestlers representing 46 states and Canada. This tournament had over 1650 wresters and majority of them are place winners at their individual state tournaments. This years class included 377 State Champions.

Koy Buesgens had a tremendous tournament. He is a State Champ at 126lbs and entered this years Super 32 at 132lbs. He would have the #1 ranked wrestler in Nic Bousakis in his bracket. 

Koy was the 11th seed in a bracket that consisted of 168 wrestlers. Koy would win his opening round match 11-1. He would continue with 3 more wins to get the quarterfinals. He would face a wrestler from Arizona that placed 2nd up in Fargo in July in Emilio Ysaguirre ranked #17 in the country. Koy would continue his great run with a UTB sudden death victory to advance to the Semi Finals.  He would face the #10 seed Mac Church, who just upset the #2 seed in the quarters. Koy's impressive run would continue with a 10-2 victory.  

The only opponent left in the bracket was the #1 ranked wrestler in the country and the #1 seed, Nic Bousakis out of Florida. Koy would wrestle another great match but came up short after getting in on a low single to an ankle. Bousakis would score the take down and win the title 6-4.  Placing 2nd at the Super 32 is a great accomplishment, congratulations Koy!

Colton Bornholdt wrestled well and went 2 and 2 at this extremely tough tournament. Colton had 168 wrestlers in his 138lb bracket. Job well done Colton!
