Noah Morlock, age 7, took 7th place in the Middle Atlantic Wrestling Association Nationals on May 3 in Ocean City, MD, in the bantam weight class. The competition started with 100 athletes in the 73-pound, 8-and-under bantam group. After two qualifying rounds, Morlock was one of 16 in the finals.
During the 2014-15 season, Morlock had 62 matches and ended the season with a 47-15 record. He finished 4th in the New York State competition and 2nd at the Eastern Nationals in Syracuse in April.
Noah’s father, Frank, said that Noah practices four nights a week at Olean’s Prescott Wrestling School during the 9-10 month long season and works out all year long. He has been wrestling since age 4 and was named an All-American in the last two seasons. He is in the second grade at Ellicottville Elementary School.
Congratulations Noah! We can’t wait to see what you achieve next year.
