Varsity Wrestling at Ron Mauck Wrestling Championships
On Thursday-Saturday, January 19-21, the wrestling team hit their halfway point of the season by attending the 69th Annual Ron Mauck Wrestling Tournament at Wesbanco Arena. Opening Ceremonies started at 6:00 p.m on Thursday. Many awards were presented to present and past coaches, wrestlers, and assistant coaches, along with the late Ron Mauck remembered for his dedication to the OVAC tournament and his love not only for the sport, but for the kids too. May his love and dedication continue on throughout the years to come in his honor. On Thursday, the Huskies had six winners advance in round one: Andrew Cox, Leland Lopez, Servacio Lopez, Hunter Bittinger, Lucas Thomas, Landen Thomas. Entering day two, six wrestlers were still in the hunt for an OVAC Title. That number had unfortunately decreased to four by Friday evening. On Saturday night, the Huskies had four OVAC placers, with a 5th place finish in the 4A Class, and 16th overall out of 43 total teams. Placing for the Huskies were; 132lb Andrew Cox - 8th place, 138lb Leland Lopez - 8th place, 215lb Lucas Thomas - Runner-up, and 285lb Landen Thomas - 6th place. Congratulations to all the place winners!
