Coed Varsity Wrestling · WRESTLING WEEKLY – JAN. 13-19


WEEKLY HIGHLIGHTS

BATTLE OF FAR HILLS
Took it on the chin and the sign has been taken from us.  Varsity match was more competitive than the 51-24 score, but we didn’t get the job done.
Varsity W’s – Conley, Overholser, Dotson, Salih, Lucas
JV/FR W’s – Carnes, Hammond, Senter, McCall.

KETTERING DUALS

Split a pair of duals.  Lost to Northmont 41-31 (gave up 18 pts in forfeits, so we won the matches wrestled battle 31-23) and beat W. Clermont 38-27.  Now 9-3 on the year.
2-0’s – Miller, Guernsey, Conley, Overholser, Salih, Hedges
1-1’s – Thompson, Machado
 
MOVING FORWARD
Busy week this week.  JV @ Butler on Wednesday.  Varsity departs on Thursday and competes near Toledo on Friday-Saturday.  FR @ Buckeye Classic (Centerville) on Saturday.  Travel sheets are attached, but I’m holding off on the Buckeye sheet because I need to confirm departure location.  As some of you may know, there is a huge basketball tournament (Flyin to the Hoop) at our school Friday through Monday.  Usually we have to depart from Roush Stadium/BOE building for this weekend’s events.  Will confirm later in the week.
 
MR. TRENT
A Kettering icon passed away this week – Jim Trent.  In addition to having our arena in his name, Mr. Trent was a teacher/principal/leader in our district and was a great supporter of all sports, including wrestling.  Please take a minute to think about Mr. Trent and his family.
