The Cottage Grove boys’ wrestling team was bit by the flu bug last week, but it still managed to finish third at the annual Nick Lutz Invitational in Florence on Saturday.
“We’ve had three quarters of our kids out with the flu,” said CGHS head coach Bill Thompson. ”Our goal has just been to get as many kids on the mat as we could and do the best we could. Third place wasn’t bad. We just have to get everybody healthy again and get them ready for regionals and state.”
The following Lions placed in the tournament: First: Tanner Herbert (170 pounds), Second: Bryce Allen (106), NickWisely (132), and Andres Ibarra (138). Third: Broc Beach (160). Shane Barker (182), Marcus Bailey (220) and Brett Cox (285).For the complete article see the 01-23-2013 issue.
