The wrestling program has not only grown in the number of wrestlers participating from grades 5-12, but their accolades continue to pile up as well. Blaine Pierce won the Spartan Classic, Jake Necessary won the North Central Conference, and 6 Red Devils placed in the NCC meet this past weekend at the Tiernan Center.
From Coach Capps, “Over the last three years the wrestling team is 33-24 in duals, while increasing the difficulty of our schedule each year. We’ve also been fortunate to have a number of individuals place or win our individual contests, including the Spartan Classic, Columbus East Invite, John Hurrle Invite, NCC, Sectionals, and Regionals. This year we will have 4 Academic All-State senior wrestlers (which may be a record). We’ve improved our NCC scoring every year. Last year we finished second in Sectionals for the first time in a number of years. We’re looking forward to similar success this weekend.”
You can catch the Red Devils in action Saturday at the Sectional at Tri High School.
