Ten schools participated Saturday in the Hurricane Reserve Wrestling Championship at the Borror Middle School gym.
”We entered eight of our wrestlers this year,” said WHS coach Kelly Tolliver. “This is a pool tournament where we attempt to match up wrestlers based on ability and age in the initial rounds, so we can get as much mat time and experience as possible for our wrestlers.”
Other than Wilmington, schools entered were Blanchester, Archbishop Carroll, Batavia, Goshen, Miami Trace, Ross, Lakota West, Valley View and Whitehall-Yearling.
For the Hurricane, Kyle “Robbie” McBrayer had four pins en route to winning the 175-pound weight class.
Christian English was runnerup at 120 pounds with a 3-1 record. Alex Bennett finished third at 215 and Mason Davis was fourth at 126 pounds.
Shane Neal at 106, John Estep at 132, Carlos Lagunes at 190 and Andrew Jones at 215 also competed for the Hurricane.
“The staff was pleased by our performance and we look forward to getting back to work Monday to learn and build on our experience,” Tolliver said. “We have a dual to prepare for this Wednesday and we travel to Edgewood for a two-day tournament this Friday and Saturday.”
