Schoolcraft’s wrestling team is sending five members to state competition in March. The team won the district championship but lost a tough match in the regionals to Lakewood Odessa. “I’m pleased with the progress the team has made through this year. They are young and inexperienced, but we’ve played a tough schedule to better prepare them for tournament competition,” Coach Rob Ling said.
The five who will compete at the highest level are Caden Sukich, sophomore at 103 lbs.; Gary Cramer, freshman at 125; Brady Gillaspie, junior at 130; Devin O’Bryant, senior at 215 and River Fox, junior at 285. “They all have a good shot at placing. Fox has been to state before and is a veteran at tournament competition, as are the others because of our tournament schedule this year.”
Ling said he can look forward to next year with the freshmen on the team that have blossomed and the eighth graders who are coming up from having a good year on the mats at their level.
