Boxing Their Way to Nationals


Left to right: MN State Champions Jesse Walters, Simon Walters, and Evan Wrazidlo

Jesse Walters, Simon Walters and Evan Wrazidlo have been working hard for their championship fights this weekend. The Silver Gloves 4-State Tournament take place January 16 and 17th in Hibbing, MN. It’s been a steady pressure cooker since each of them took the Silver Gloves State championship in early November. Now they get a shot to advance to nationals in February. In their way are the state champs from North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wisconsin. It’s a two day single elimination tournament with the champions earning a trip to the nationals in Lenexa, KS.
