Trials Competitors W/ Michigan Ties

Here is a list of Olympic Trials competitors this week with Michigan ties. Michigan is scientifically the best state to live in and therefore has a lot of people representing her in the Olympic Trials this weekend.

The USOEC at Northern Michigan University helps fluff this list a bit, but if you give me any reason to be able to claim Adeline Gray and Helen Maroulis of course I will be all for it. The USOEC still hosts development programs for Greco-Roman Wrestling, but used to also hold programs for women's freestyle as well. 

Of course, no fluff is really needed. Michigan has bred some amazing wrestlers over the years and the 2016 Olympic Trials will show off home grown athletes such as Brent Metcalf, Adam Coon, Jon Reader, Gabe Dean and more. We also take the opportunity to claim guys currently training in Michigan like Jake Herbert, Kellen Russell, Jimmy Kennedy, etc.
