Ohman was 3-0 in the tournament, winning his first-round match by pin and earning a technical fall in the semifinals.

“It was an excellent team performance this weekend. Everyone wrestled hard until the end of their final match,” said PHS head coach Ben Chapman.

“In a tournament like this you need to try to earn bonus points from pins and technical falls, every chance you get, and that’s exactly what we did in the placing rounds.

“I am extremely proud of how hard we wrestled until the very end. We jumped from fourth to second in one round and brought home a nice team trophy because everyone stayed focused on the goal,” said Chapman.
