The first event of the wrestling season is in the books and the Panthers had three place winners at the Riverside Rumble. Leading the way were Jacob Perpar and Brandon Eggleston, both with 4th place finishes. Noland Renfroe also placed 6th after defaulting his last two matches due to injury. Also wrestling well in the championship bracket was William Wilburn and Dylan Norwood, who both finished in 8th place. Placing in the Beaver Consolation bracket were Zak Adkins, Kevin Conroy, and Rynell Roper, who all came in second. Roper, a freshman, picked up his first three wins on the varsity mat. The tournament was won by West Branch, followed by Lorain Southview and Perry. We finished in 12th out of 16 teams even though we were forced to wrestle without 5 weight classes. Keep up the hard work.
