The Wildcat wrestlers concluded their season last Saturday at the Hamilton County Middle School Wrestling Tournament. With multiple reserve wrestlers filling in for their varsity teammates and no entrants in seven of the twenty-one weight classes, the Wildcat's were predicted to finish eleventh out of the eleven teams going into the tournament. Fortunately, many of the wrestlers put on their best performance of the year. The Wildcats placed nine wrestlers out of the fourteen they entered in the top six, earning them eighth overall as a team. Elijah Escoto and Jose Reyes each reached the finals in their very first year on the mat. Jose Reyes capped off his year with a dominating performance in the finals earning the County Championship title. Elijah Escoto fell short in the finals and was honored as the County runner-up. Justin Metzinger and Grant Lipps finished their season with a very respectable third place finish. Fresh off of the injury list, Eitan Halevi fought his way to a fourth place finish. Aaron DeCapua, Christian Reck, Alex Van Bibber and Dominic Primavera all earned sixth place ribbons.

Are you interested in French food? Please come and meet in Mrs. Tripp’s room both today and tomorrow after school. Bring your favorite snack to share.
