Torrin Mickelson went to Wasilla over the weekend and returned to The Rock with a lot of bling. 

The Kodiak youngster captured wrestling’s triple crown at the Alaska USA State Championships at the Menard Sports Center. He collected gold medals in freestyle, folkstyle and Greco Roman to pace the Kodiak Kid Wrestling Club at the three-day tournament. 

And he accomplished the feat by crushing in the 10-and-under division. Mickelson sported a sparkling 14-0 record, with nine matches ending with a pin and the other six by technical fall.  

Mickelson wasn’t the only Kodiak kid returning with gold. Elijah Coe (10U, 84 pounds), Braelyn Troxell (14U girl, 119), Olivia Troxell (junior girl, 122) and Ariadna Sorto-Chicas (16U, 200) all took first place in freestyle. 

Braelyn Troxell and Elijah Coe won all seven of their matches, while Olivia Troxell and Ariadna Sorto-Chicas were victorious in their only match.  

Olivia Troxell was also awarded first for being the only competitor in her folkstyle and Greco bracket.
