It was Central's first outing of the season with team competition this past weekend and it did not disappoint. Our coaches are extremely proud of the kids with the work they did on Fri. and Sat. and also the parents that made the trip to help support us.
We may have lost to Rockford on Fri. night, but we gained a lot of respect for the way we were wrestling. Justin Stevens, Tim Swanson, Austin Kidrowski and Adam Goerge won their matches by fall or point spreads.
Grant Mueller and Dustin Hale received forfeits to help the Raiders along, but in the end too many trips to our backs did the Raiders in. Final Score was 39-30. At the JV level, not many matches were wrestled, but Jared Wickenhauser picked up a nice victory over a more experienced opponent and Justin Govrik wrestled well in only his second career meet.
