    Stock Up Report from 2024 U23's

    Sunday saw the second day of the U23 National Championships take place in Geneva, Ohio. This tournament is slightly different from the U20 tournament - which is a true World Team Trials event. At some weights in U23, wrestlers who made the national team at the 2024 US Olympic Team Trials have first dibs on a berth on the U23 team. The winners of this event will have the opportunity to compete internationally at the 2024 U23 Pan-American Championships, June 21-22nd, in Colombia. 

    The U20 brackets were small because wrestlers needed to qualify for the tournament; however, that wasn’t the case at the U23 tournament, so there were some huge brackets. With more competitors comes more opportunities for upsets and previously unheralded stars to shine. That’s what we’re focusing on today - wrestlers whose hypothetical stocks rose after their showing at the U23 national tournament, primarily focusing on freestyle. 


    Max Gallagher (Penn)

    2023 NCAA qualifier Max Gallagher was the champion at 57 kg and did so by sweeping Army West Point’s Charlie Farmer 8-4 and 6-3 in two straight bouts. Gallagher’s most impressive win came in the semifinals when he defeated Stevo Poulin (Northern Colorado) in the semifinals. Poulin was a runner-up at last year’s U23 competition and was a 2023 Big 12 champion and a two-time NCAA Round of 12 finisher.
