At districts, Hulse survived the first round by technical fall. He advanced to the semi-finals and pinned his man. He then took the chance to take on the championship match. He had no problem pinning his man to take the district win.
With a short time until his time to compete, he has done his normal routine; running on his own time, and practicing like normal.
When asked, Hulse said, “When I won the championship I was super excited and pumped up but knew I still had a lot of work left to do. When this is over, I will be sad but I will just keep in mind there is next year to prepare for. For now I need to focus on the opportunity I get and do the best I can.”
When asked how he feels about all the support he’s gotten from the community, he responded, “I am really glad they are coming out to cheer me on and that I get to see how supportive my own town and team are.”
Hulse will take his first match at Wells Fargo Arena in Des Moines today at 1:30.
