Unfortunately, we lost a close one to Ireton.  Both teams won 7 matches, but we lost on bonus points.  Several wrestlers went 3-0 for the night:  Brendon Gallagher, Ben Goodfriend, Brett Gallagher, Griffin Brown, Josh Hunter, and Mitchell Pan. Luc Schermer and Justin Conner went 2-1 for the night.  Griffin Brown had an last second win over a state ranked wrestler, and Terrance Bridgers won the Bear Claw award for staying tough for the entire match against a second ranked wrestler in the state who will wrestle Division I next year for Penn.
