Ewing Passes 100 Career Win Mark

Ewing+Passes+100+Career+Win+Mark

Tyrone senior Braden “El Jefe” Ewing reached an important career milestone that only 11 other wrestlers in school history have reached. Ewing earned his 100th career win in his fourth bout of the day at the PO Mountaineer Duels.

Fitting for Ewing, who has been one of Tyrone’s most dominant wrestlers in the past four years, he secured his 100th win with a pin in just nine seconds.

Braden has continued to make small improvements consistently each day which has resulted in over 100 career wins. His determination to improve has helped him win each match

But despite all of his success on the mat, Ewing’s freshman season did not play out like the rest of his career. His freshman year he only wrestled 15 bouts and finished with a 7-8 record.

“Freshman year was a real learning experience for me,” said Ewing, who has progressively improved in each of his high school wrestling seasons.

Ewing’s freshman year was the COVID-19-shortened season, making his accomplishment of reaching 100 wins even more impressive.

As a sophomore, Ewing took off, racking up 36 wins and 13 losses, making the district finals and placing second. That year he also took fourth at Southwest Regionals.

As a junior Ewing earned another 33 wins with only 10 losses, placing third at districts and second at the Southwest Regional finals.

This season Ewing has already matched his 33 wins from last season. He has only lost two bouts so far this year and has high hopes for the postseason.

Losing in the blood round at states as a junior, Ewing has flipped a switch this season and is determined to be on the podium in Hershey this year.

“I have greatly improved as a wrestler from year to year, with hopes of a state championship this season,” Ewing said.

Ewing’s only two losses this season came to the number one ranked heavyweight in AA and the number nine ranked heavyweight in AAA. Ewing already ranks top 10 in all-time wins for Tyrone and still has time to climb higher.

“Braden has continued to make small improvements consistently each day which has resulted in over 100 career wins. His determination to improve has helped him win each match,” said Tyrone head coach Quinton Wright.

This has been a very successful year for Ewing athletically. He was also named a first-team State All-Star in football.

Ewing has joined some very impressive company with his 100th win.  Other Tyrone Wrestlers who reached 100 career wins are:

AJ Schopp
Ron Garbinsky
Terry Tate
TJ Albright
Thaddeus Westley
David Miller
Bruce Wallace
Dylan Weston
Robert Waite
Brice Mertiff
