Crusader Wrestlers Make History
On Saturday, December 20, 2014, your Crusader Wrestlers made school history when every team member placed in the top five for their weight class at the City Championship Tournament held at Shortridge High School.
The squad was led by Senior Mitchell Donlan, who defeated tough opponents from Arsenal Tech and Cathedral to place first in the 138lbs weight class, becoming Scecina’s first City Champion wrestler since 2005.
Seniors Ben Hilcz (126lbs) and Kevin Walters (132lbs), along with sophomore Ray Reisinger (113lbs) each placed third, while senior Chris Wilson (182lbs) and freshman Sam Defreese (145lbs) rounded out the top five in their respective divisions.
This mid-season success is a well-deserved bright spot for a team that has faced multiple injuries. Despite the setbacks, the wrestlers have persevered and are hoping to take the momentum of this past weekend’s accomplishments into the second half of their season. With sectionals a month away, the Crusaders are peaking at just the right time.
