Freshmen/Sophomore Patriot Wrestling at Westside (12/16/2011)

The Patriot wrestlers competed at the Westside 9/10 tournament on Friday, December 16th, 2011.  The Patriots were able to hold off a strong late push from Burke and Millard North to claim the title for the 2nd straight year under Coach Olson.  Millard South finished with 174 team points while Burke was second with 154 points and Millard North third with 153 points.  Putting 8 wrestlers in the finals was the key to the team title because only 2 more Patriots notched medals.  Those 2 were Taylor Riedel who earned 4th at a tough 152 pound weight class and Michael Hess who earned 3rd at heavy weight.  The Patriots were able to win their first 3 weight classes (106, 120, 126) before dropping consecutive finals matches at 132 and 138.
