The Sandy Valley Wrestling Team traveled to Heath High School to compete in the OHSAA Division 3 Wrestling Tournament. The Cardinals placed 9th out of the 60 team field. Leading the way for the Cardinals were Wyatt Moyer, Brody Marks and Devon Watkins . Moyer earned a 3rd place finish, Marks placed 4th, Watkins placed 5th and secured his 100th career win. The top 4 finishers in each weight class qualify to wrestle at the State Tournament in Columbus March 13-15.
Branden Boggs, Seth Armstrong, Justin King, and Matt Gentry all won 2 bouts on the weekend helping secure a top 10 finish.

Our effort was good this weekend. We wrestled hard but in critical matches lacked the ability to capitalize on key opportunities and I believe it cost us 2 qualification spots.
I’m super proud of my team we are maturing and learning the importance of the small details and how they play a big role in high level matches.
Getting 2 qualifiers and an alternate is a little short of our goal but we will continue to work and improve in all phases.
