The Sandy Valley Wrestling Team traveled to Cuyahoga Heights High School to compete in the Region 19 OHSAA Duals. The Cardinals won their 1st round match against Dalton 44-36 and fell to Independence 40-40 losing on tie breaker criteria F. The Cardinals were led by Devon Watkins , Justin King, Wyatt Moyer, Brody Marks, Bam Moyer and Branden Boggs earning 2-0 records. Posting one win for the Cardinals were Matt Gentry, Seth Armstrong and Sam Moriconi.
I’m very proud of our team. We wrestled hard and almost overcame a 30 point deficit in forfeits to make it to the regional semi-final. For our team to be able to compete like that is saying a lot about the work being put in by our individuals. In the dual meets we competed in we were certainly NOT out wrestled. At this point in the season that is about all we can control.
The Cardinals will host Dover (Senior Night) on Feb.18th @5:30pm.
