Brothers take All-America honors at national meets

Brothers Colton and Tyler Schilling of Sweet Home both won All-America honors at the national tournament in Orem, Utah, June 30-July 2.

Colton, 14, lost to a New Mexico wrestler to finish second in Greco after wrestling with a broken finger. He defaulted out of the freestyle tournament on an injury.

Tyler, 12, pinned an opponent from North Dakota to finish fifth in freestyle.

Ian Search, 13, of Sweet Home also wrestled at nationals and had a couple of “great matches,” said Patricia Schilling, a parent who was present.

The Schilling boys are scheduled to leave July 27 for South Africa on a wrestling exchange trip.
