Trainer Mike Wood was ready to ease up a bit after accomplishing a dazzling feat of three NCHA World titles in 2020. But, don’t think that means he’ll be taking the year off.

The Bill Freeman Award is given annually to a cutting competitor who epitomizes the namesake’s tradition of pursuing excellence in the show pen. In 2018, that honor was bestowed upon trainer James Payne.
