CINCINNATI — The East Clinton wrestling team finished 11th Saturday at the Sycamore Invitational.
Noah Morgan and Thomas Wright were both third-place finishers for the Astros. DJ Perry was fifth.
“Morgan and Wright wrestled really well,” EC coach Doug Stehlin said. “Morgan’s one loss came from Campbell of Summit Country Day who is currently ranked 9th in the state. This is a tough tournament with many Division 1 and Division 2 schools so it gives our guys a chance to see how we compare and starts to get us ready for post-season.”
Morgan was 3-1 while Wright went 4-1 with 2 pins. Perry had 3 pins.
