Individual Wrestlers Place High at Cross County
By: Ella Urban, a freshman at Leigh High School
On January 15th, the Clarkson-Leigh wrestling team participated in a tournament at Cross County in Stromsburg.
The team had a successful meet with 4 out of their 5 wrestlers placing in this tournament, which included 19 other schools. The three qualifying included sophomore Dylan Higby, freshman Jacob Koehn, sophomore Morgan Bunner, and senior Bryce Jurgensen.
“I think we improved at this meet,” Bunner said. “We got more matches in and could practice what we were learning in practice. I think we could have wrestled better, but since most of us were sick earlier in the week, we were a little slower I think.”
Head Coach Tyler Reeves stated, “We only had 5 guys wrestle that day due to illness. The guys who did wrestle competed well. This meet was another solid day by this group.”
