He went undefeated in a 16 man bracket pinning every kid in the first period and not allowing a single point to be scored on him the entire touney. Bryant plans on trying out for the national team in March.


Earlier this month, more than a dozen Perry County wrestlers competed in the Kentucky Youth Wrestling tournament. Many of them competed for the Perry County squad, while three competed for Warhawk Wrestling out of Pike County.

At the end of the day, two wrestlers, Shade Combs and Maddox Bryant, walked away with state titles. Several other wrestlers also made their way to the podium (Ian Montgomer, Damien Haynes, Kaiden Melton, Cooper Caudill, Gage Feltner and Gage Logan). Other wrestlers that competed on the day were: Hayden Canady, Madison Haynes, Arlie Salley, Baylen Haynes, Owen Montgomery, and Sophia Haynes.

Results: Ina Montgomery 4th, Damien Haynes 6th, Kaiden Melton 6th, Cooper Caudill 6th, Shade Combs 1st, Maddox Bryant 1st, Gage Feltner 3rd and Gage Logan 2nd.
