Congratulations are in order to the 2017-18 wrestling team. They competed hard and represented our school well at this past weekend’s state tournament in Bossier City. Some of the top finishers who placed and earned points towards the team title were:
Colton Kendrick was the state runner up in the 113 pound division. Colton lost to a wrestler who entered the championships with a 37-1 overall record.
Freshman John Drake lost a heartbreaker in triple overtime of the 220 pound division in the semi-finals to the eventual state champion. The good news is that John fought back and won 3rd place in his weight class!
Tyler Herlache lost to the eventual state champion in the quarter-finals of the 120 pound division. The great news is that Tyler wrestled back and won 4th place!
Josh Valentine lost early on, but fought hard in the wrestle backs to win 4th place in the 195 pound division.
The last wrestler to place was Joha Anderson, who placed 5th overall in the 170 pound division.
Congratulations to our other wrestlers who competed in the state tournament. They are: Peyton Matherne, Carson Schlumbrecht, Jeremy Reyes, Eric Bumgarden, Kolbe Golden, Devan Durham and John Baker.
