The Sandy Valley Cardinals Wrestling Team hosted the Division 3 Sectional Wrestling tournament on Saturday.The Cardinals finished in 3rd place as a team placing 8 out of 9 wrestlers entered into the tournament. Individually, the top 4 wrestlers in each weight class advance to the district wrestling tournament next weekend. The Cardinals were led by
2 Champions on the day, Brandon Boggs (106) and Wyatt Moyer (220). Finishing as runners up were Brody Marks (126), Devon Watkins (132), Justin King (145), and Matt Gentry (152). Seth Armstrong (113) finished 4th to round out the District Qualifiers. Tommy Russell(120) finished in 5th place and will be a District Alternate.
I believe our effort is good and our guys are working hard. Having 6 Sectional Finalists and 7 District Qualifiers out of 9 entries is promising. It shows the whole room is progressing which is exactly what you want at this point in the season.
The Cardinals will compete in the OHSAA Division 3 District Tournament at Heath HS on March 6th @ 4:00pm and March 7th @ 9:00am
