Week 4 Results

The team finished 9th in the Perry Pin City Tournament this past weekend. Ronnie Adkins picked up our team Wrestler-of-the-Week award and the New Herald Player of the Week award for his first place finish at 145 pounds. He went 5-0 on the weekend, with 3 pins, a decision in the semis, and a 12-2 major decision in the finals. He now has a 14-4 record on the year. Dustin Cromie finished 3rd over a wrestler who has beaten him twice this year already. His 7-1 win in the finals increased his record to a team best 15-5 with 11 pins, also leading the team. Other placers for the team were Tim Lake and Brandon Eggleston, both 4th, and Jacob Perpar in 5th. In the consolation white bracket, we had two who finished in first and received medals. Anthony Black (189) and William Wilburn (!35) each took home these. Other placers in the white bracket were Noland Renfroe 2nd and Payton Wainwright 3rd. Overall, the coaches are very happy with how the squad acted as a team and that they were 4.5 points out of 5th place. Keep up the good work wrestlers.
