Two CWU Wrestling Members make it to Nationals

     Everything is bigger, and better in Texas, and now two of the CWU Wrestling Club members can agree. Both Dylan Amaedo and Jonathan Dickerson made it to the 2018 NCWA National Championships which took place in Allen, Texas March 7th through March 11th.
     Dylan Amaedo is a freshman here at Central Washington University, and is from Lakewood, Washington. Dylan began wrestling at just four years old, and then began competing two years later. In high school, Dylan went to state his junior year, as well as placing 5th his senior year at 195 pounds. Throughout high school Dylan was involved with football, and track in addition to wrestling.
     Jonathan Dickerson is a junior here at Central Washington University, and is from Kent, Washington. Jonathan began wrestling in 8th grade. He is epileptic, and was not able to play contact sports such as football or rugby. He said “All of my friends played football, and I wanted to fit in, so I begged my mom and my doctor to let me wrestle, and the rest is history!” Jonathan wrestled all four years in high school, and has been wrestling year round since he was 15 years old. Jonathan was recruited by Andrew Vulliet during the state wrestling tournament at the Tacoma Dome. Jonathan transferred to CWU as a sophomore and began training with the team. He is now the captain of the Wrestling Club. Even though he hurt his MCL at the National tournament, he is “ready to get healed up, train harder, and be the next All-American for CWU next year!” One person Jonathan would like to thank is his mom for pushing him through his injuries, and for helping him make it as far as he did on, and off the mat.
