Raiders News · Good day at Northfield JV Wrestling


5 guys headed to Northfield to compete in the 41st annual Northfield JV wrestling Tournament this Saturday. Everyone was able to wrestle 3 matches and gain precious mat time as the season is winding down and we are all trying to get in end of the season form! Cain Clark wrestled at 138lbs. finishing 1-2 and picked up a win by pin for the day. Gage Roberts continues his impressive freshman season going 2-1, wining by pin and a 9-7 decision win. His only lost on the day was a match he could’ve/should’ve won but fell in close one 6-5.  Alex Bigham was able to get on the mat for the first time this season finishing the day 0-3 but gaining some much needed mat time. Clay Smith also competed at the 170lb. weight class. Unable to pick up a win going 0-3, Clay is improving even if the win/loss record isn’t where he wants it to be. Last but not least Jesse Turner wrestled at 285lb and contiues to impress how much he has picked up in his first season. Jesse was 2-1 winning by a 6-3 decision and by pin. His only lost was in a good match against Oak Hill where he got caught with his feet stuck underneath him and couldn’t get off his back losing by pin. It was a good day of wrestling for these guys and hope we can continue to build on this, the last few weeks of the season!
