12 Contenders Honored With ISWA Triple/Double Crown Awards

By Ryan Parrish 09/13/2021, 11:45am EDT

Contenders lead all other academies in the state with 12 winners of the coveted ISWA Triple/Double Crown Awards.  Female athletes do not compete in Greco State, therefore they earn a Double Crown by winning both the Freestyle and Folkstyle State Tournaments. Male athletes earn a Triple Crown by winning all three styles (Freestyle, Folkstyle, Greco). CWA had at least one Triple Crown winner in each eligible divisions. We are so proud of each of these athletes.
