American Ninja Warrior Junior season two: Results of the first quarterfinals

In order to stay in the game, the wildcards went all out.

Before we start off this recap, we have an announcement to make: American Ninja Warrior Junior is MOVING to Friday nights at 6pm beginning March 20! Be sure you adjust your schedule if you don’t want to miss the new episodes.

With that out of the way, let’s get into the very first quarterfinal episode!

The first quarterfinal episode zipped by with emotional races. Each age group started off with the wildcard match up. The fastest two competitors in the division who didn’t make the quarterfinals got one more chance. They put it all on the line to keep their seasons alive. Moving into the quarterfinal races, it was anyone’s guess as the pressure mounted and pushed the Ninjas to make some risky moves. Sometimes it paid off. Sometimes it didn’t.
