This weekend the Switzerland County wrestling team competed in the Jennings County sectional held Saturday. With a lack of wrestlers, the Pacers were still well represented. Tallying one of the higher point totals for a sectional meet with only five grapplers competing. There were some ups and downs on the day but overall was a successful day in which we look on building on in the future.
Wrestling Sectionals- Keegan Ray moves on to Regionals
Senior Keegan Ray (132lbs) became the schools first ever out right regional qualifier by besting his seed and placing 3rd overall (there was a regional qualifier in a past year but advanced as an alternate not obtaining one of the top 4 qualifying spots).
Another standout on the day was Senior Alex Powers (220lbs). Alex came in unseeded and ended up a second alternate with a 6th place finish.
Also competing on the day but not placing were: Cody Wilson (182), Andrew Garland (195) and Brenon Smith (285).
Keegan will compete in the Jeffersonville Regional and eyes a spot at a semi state berth. Help me in congratulating Keegan and the rest of the team on a good season.
