Alma Wrestlers Take 5th Place

The Alma Wrestlers traveled to Cambridge Saturday on a very cold and windy morning. It might had been cold outside but the wrestlers were on fire inside! Even with some teams not making it to the tournament 11 teams were able to still come. This allowed for everyone to get some wrestling in before the Christmas break.

Kyle Johnson was in a four man round robin bracket. He had two wins but due to the way the round robin works Kyle’s wins gave him 2nd place. Josh Mapes also had a 4 man round robin but was unable to get a win, but brought home a 4th place medal. Tyson McCurdy had one of the toughest brackets at the 152lb weight class. He was able to get 4th place. Joseph felix wrestled at the 160lb weight class and was able to get 3 wins and earn 2nd place. Hector Lugo had three wins and got a 5th place finish. Mitchell Gehrig wrestled well own the day and earned himself 4th place. Jesus Felix got one pin and lost a close match 6-2 but earned 2nd place. As a team they earned 5th place. The Alma Wrestlers will wrestle next on January 7th in Franklin.
