On Saturday Jan. 5, 2019 South Adams wrestling was back in action after an extended break over the holidays. We traveled North to New Haven High School for their annual Bill Kerbel 14 team individual tournament. This was our first tournament in the new year and was also our first individual tournament of the season, and we were looking forward to seeing each one of our guys compete well at their respected weight class. This tournament was tough and had great competition from the likes of Bishop Dwenger, to Homestead, and even across the border with Van Wert. Our guys were able to collectively battle and give our team a 3rd place finish! Individually we had 1 Champion, (2) runners-up,(2) 3rd place finishes and (2) 4th place finishers.
Below are our individual records on the day, as well as, final placings.
106- Logan Bauman 3-1 on the day and finished 2nd place
