Congrats to the Sandy Valley Wrestling Team on a 3rd place team finish today at the IVC tournament, despite being short handed three varsity wrestlers. Individually, Justin King & Jack Boyd placed 5th and Tommy Russell placed 4th. Matt Gentry, Wyatt Moyer, & Curtis DeLong placed 3rd; Devon Watkins & Josh Newell finished as league runners up. Jacob Newell and Cam Blair finished as league champions!
“I thought we had a decent showing at the IVC Championships despite being short handed. We won some critical matches and dropped a couple matches we shouldn’t have. Jacob Newell had the biggest win of the tournament pinning Adam Lenhoff who is currently ranked 7th in the state in Division II. Overall I think our performance shows that we are moving in the right direction and focusing in on peaking for the Sectional Tournament.
The Cardinals will be back at it again at home next Saturday at 10am for the OHSAA Sectional Championships.
