CAMP ZAMA, Japan – For the first time in his 14 years at Robert D. Edgren’s wrestling team helm, coach Justin Edmonds’ Eagles scored a regular-season dual-meet upset of defending Far East champion Nile C. Kinnick and placed highest among DODEA-Japan and international teams.

“Every time they go out there, the guys keep working hard and keep improving,” Edmonds said. “I’m so proud of them.”

Edgren got pinfall victories by Tai Marsh (108), Jayden Powell (115), Levi Rick (135), Ethan Hovenkotter (148), Cody Dettman (158), Brad McCollum (168) and Jason Dudley (180) in a 45-19 romp over Kinnick.

It was the first time the Eagles placed higher in such a tournament than Kinnick and St. Mary’s. Kinnick finished second, with American School In Japan third and St. Mary’s fourth.
