The 5-foot-3 Macias did not compete in his match to keep healthy for the tournament, as did Termini. "You don't get that opportunity that much during the season with our schedule," Macias said about the tournament.
"It's basically a tournament of a lifetime as a wrestler in high school," Termini said. "It is literally the best competition in the country, and that'd probably be better than winning state."
Per the tournament's history, 22 wrestlers that have competed at the Walsh Ironman have won a combined 33 NCAA Division I championships.
Burlington Central coach Jordon Bakley reached out to the Ironman tournament director with intentions of getting both Termini and Macias seeded with their Division I wrestling hopes. The two will work out with Montini, who got a full team bid.
Termini, in particular, could surprise early on.
