In the first match of the evening, the Blazers defeated Eau Claire 54-18. The Blazers were lead to a solid victory by Janio Cespedes, Roman Robinson, and Chris Webb who was able to get his first pin of the season!

In the second match of the night, the team got off to a cold start that allowed the Skyhawks to jump out to a 48-12 lead despite Janio Cespedes and Paul Ford securing quick 1st period pins. The team was able to win the final 3 matches thanks to Jabari Hampton putting on an offensive flurry of points before pinning his opponent, as well as Michael McQueen pinning his opponent in the 1st period. Justin Louderbough also won his match by forfeit to make the final score 48-30. The team is improving and wrestling with greater effort, and will continue to work on performing better in critical swing matches that can make winning difficult.

The team is currently 3-5 on the season and will next face Brookland-Cayce and Dreher on Thursday at BCHS.
