Tyler Le placed 4th at 113 lbs, Kiar Parker placed 3rd at 285 lbs, while Katrell Jackson and Eric Bartnik both placed 2nd. Huy Dang was the 5th wrestler who was entered and also wrestled well winning one match. In the finals Jackson lost 10-2 in the finals while Bartnik dropped a 5-4 decision.
As the wrestling season comes to a end and we wait to see if anyone earns a wildcard to the State Tournament, all wrestlers please make sure you get you banquet money into Mrs. Bartnik along with your candle orders. All wrestlers stay in tune for summer camps and tournaments as well as practices. Lastly, to the students of Central wrestling is such a great sport and Central has a great tradition truly think about giving it a shot for next season. All students are welcome when we do open mats for practices to come and give it a try. Stay tune................
