Ayala places 5th at NCWA Nationals

03/12/2012 -

The three Blair wrestlers who participate in the NCWA competed in the NCWA National tournament 3/8-10 down in Dayton Beach, FL. Abe Ayala finished the tournament in fine fashion, placing 5th. Ayala wrestled his way to the quarterfinals before losing to the eventual champion, Cody Shivener (Notre Dame College). After the loss, Ayala would have to win one more match to secure placing, something he did when he defeated Maximillian Becks (University of Central Florida). After another victory, Ayala faced a rematch with Derek Leiby (Penn College of Technology) who defeated him in the finals of the MEC conference tournament. Ayala wrestled a better match but still lost to Leiby, moving him to the match for 5th place, where he defeated Jonathan Clemente (United States Naval Academy). Ayala will look to build off his success when he wrestles for Princeton next year.
