The varsity wrestling team traveled to Columbus this weekend to compete in the Olentangy invite. The Firebirds came away with two placers (Witt Creech, Kingston Shorter), as well as a tournament champion (Joey Bradberry). The tournament featured teams from all across Columbus, providing an excellent opportunity for an inexperienced team to get their feet wet in varsity competition. Along with the three placers above nearly every wrestler on the team recorded wins, many their first of their varsity career.
After the event, head coach Tony Bradberry had this to say “It was a good opportunity for some of our guys to open their varsity careers. We got to see where we stand and what we need to work on going forward. I think for some of the wrestlers it was an eye opener, but that’s a good thing as it should help motivate us to get better.”
The Firebird wrestling team will be back in action this Friday at Fairfield High School as they take on the Indians. JV wrestling will begin at 5:30 PM, with the Varsity taking the mat at 7:00 PM.
