This past weekend the Cardinal Ritter wrestling team competed in IHSAA Sectionals at Southport High School. The leader of the group was Javon Rodgers who placed 4th in his weight class. This moves him on to the Regionals at Perry Meridian. Rodgers started the day off with a big win that moved him to the semifinals. He came up just short of winning the Semi-finals but came back in the wrestle backs with a victory. This put him in the 3 vs 4 match which he lost but still qualified to move on to the Regionals.
Parker Mead and Mitchell Wilson placed 5th making them alternatives in their weight class. Also placing on the day was Alec Frazee and Derek Gomez who earned 6th.
The whole wrestling team and staff want to congratulate Bryan Richardson who wrestled hard all year long and never gave up at any time. Keep up the hard work and know we are all proud of you.
Javon Rodgers will be wrestling in the Perry Meridian Regionals Saturday, February 4th. Come on out and cheer him on to get him to Semi-State.
