The Texan Wrestling Club out of Justin, Texas hosted the 6th Annual Mid-Summer Mat Bash on Saturday July 28th & Sunday July 29th, 2018 at the Northwest High School. This 27-team dual team tournament is a pool style tournament, giving each team 12 duals in two days. Teams came from all over the country to wrestle in this one division tournament (you could be wrestling just a high school club team or an all-star team). Teams were from Colorado, New Jersey, Minnesota, Indiana, Kansas, Nebraska, Iowa, Pennsylvania, Louisiana, Texas, Oklahoma, South Dakota and Missouri.
Team Vision Quest was placed in Pool A with Collingswood, NJ; Kansas Silver; West Ranch Punishers (Texas); Best Train (Texas); Team 605 (South Dakota) and Nebraska Grenades. This would give Vision Quest six duals on the first day of competition.
Vision Quest duals would be scheduled to start at 8 am on Saturday but was delayed 2.5 because of computer problems. Once the whistle blow to start the first duals the team was ready for action against Collingswood, NJ. Vision Quest would waste little time and win 48 – 22 against the young team from New Jersey.
Dual two was again a win for Vision Quest as they beat Kansas Silver 34 – 28 in a back and forth dual. Vision Quest sealed the dual with wins in the last three matches wrestled at 165 lbs, 175 lbs and 185 lbs. With forfeits at 205 and 285 given up by Vision Quest it made the final score closer then what the dual was.
