On Sunday, 2023 Fargo Junior National Greco-Roman champion Cadyn Coyle (Bennington, NE) made his college decision public on social media as he chose to stay in-state and wrestle for perennial DII power Nebraska-Kearney.
Just over a week ago, Coyle was in the FargoDome receiving a stop sign after winning the Junior title at 106 lbs. In the finals, Coyle downed 2023 U17 Greco-Roman World Team member Ezekiel Witt via tech, 10-2. Coyle finished four of his five Fargo matches via fall or tech on his way to the title. The championship marked the second time that Coyle has earned Junior All-American honors in Fargo, as he was third at 100 lbs last year. He also was four in 16U Greco-Roman in 2021.
Coyle’s best style has been Greco-Roman, as evidenced by his three All-American honors from Fargo. In 2021, Coyle also finished fourth in Greco at the UWW World Team Trials competing at 45 kg.
In high school action, Coyle is a two-time state finalist for Bennington High School. He was a state runner-up as a sophomore and a 113 lb Class B state champion in 2023. Before the 2022-23 high school season, Coyle took second at Preseason Nationals.
Judging by his current weight, it’s likely that Coyle becomes the elusive and valuable “career 125 lber” for the Lopers. That could come in handy as Nebraska-Kearney did not have a national qualifier at that weight class in 2023.
Coyle will be a senior in 2023-24 at Bennington High School. For his profile on InterMat’s Commitment Page, click here .
