Jake Morrissey added another wrestling title to his list of accomplishments.

On April 6, Morrissey was a National Champion at the USA Wrestling/Cliff Keen Folk Style Nationals, in Cedar Falls, Iowa.

Morrissey dominated the 170-pound bracket, opening his first two matches with one major decision, 11-5 and a tech fall, 16-0.

The Oconto Falls High School senior then pinned his next three opponents to make it to the championship round.

In the final, Morrissey met up with Division I, 2013 Wisconsin State champion, Jacob Stilling.

Morrissey overpowered Stilling 16-6, to become the 2013 USAW National champion at 170 pounds.

He wrapped up his career by going undefeated for the Panthers this season, winning the state Division 2 title at 170 pounds. It was his third state title.
