The Sandy Valley Varsity Wrestling Team traveled to Shenandoah HS to compete in the District Semifinal Dual meet. The winner of the meet qualifies to the State Dual Meet Championships consisting of the top 8 teams in the State of Ohio. The Cardinals won the match by a score of 46-31.
Winning matches for the Cards were Branden Boggs, Seth Armstrong, Bear Watkins, Matt Barnett, Matt Gentry, Cam Blair , Wyatt Moyer and Alec Trent.
It’s an exciting time for our program to qualify for the State Dual Meet Championships. We have put a lot of hard work in and we are beginning to see the fruits of our labor.
I certainly believe that we could have wrestled better. We dropped a few matches that were close and gave up some big points in the 3 rd period. Luckily, we had some freshman ( Matt Barnett and Alec Trent) come up with big matches to help seal the victory. We still need to work on our consistency and better positioning when wrestling high level competition. It will be paramount at the State Championships for us to turn those close matches into wins for us because it only gets more competitive from here on out.
The Cardinals will be in action again tonight( 1/13)at Home vs Garaway and Fairless at 6 pm.
