Our Wrestling Team

defeated Eau Gallie

last night with a

score of 30-29.

With injuries and illness affecting our team we started the evening with a 12 point deficit. Connor Bechtol scored a pivotal win at the 106 pound weight class by defeating one of last year’s state qualifiers. Gavin Layne also won big scoring a takedown in overtime; Chris Prince bumped up to the 285 weight class and even though his opponent had a 65lb advantage, Chris was able to give MHS the edge we needed with a pin. The difference between a victory and a tie came down to Micah Faxon who wrestled hard- he lost 20-5, but he saved the team 1 point by not getting pinned and that sealed the victory.

Joe Fields and Charlie Galluscio, our captains also scored pins, both in 34 seconds
