“Gabe had an incredible weekend. He has taken his abilities to the next level and it is very exciting to see he is efforts pay off,” said Chapman.

“Connor is an aggressive wrestler that goes out to dominate his opponents. He sets the tone of the match early and keeps the intensity up through the entire match.

“Erik Ohman went 4-1 with a very hard-fought match in his only loss [8-2 against Adams- Friendship’s Harry Nawrot]. Erik refused to quit and almost came back to win the match. I think it was a turning point for him and I am excited to see where he goes from here.

“Josh continues to fine-tune his technique. He is very advanced for a sophomore and could put together a great season if he continues to put in the extra time and effort,” said the coach.
