Wrestling Program Gains Momentum
It was a great day of competition for the Scecina wrestling team at the Guerin Catholic Invite on January 10. Wrestlers from Culver Community, Ft. Wayne Carroll, Brebeuf Jesuit, Shelbyville High School, Scecina, and Guerin faced off in some very tough matches. Coaches Bobby Sponsel (‘04) and Quinn Carrico (‘09) had looked forward to this opportunity to match up with teams they hadn’t yet seen on their schedule, and both were proud of our boys’ efforts. Freshman Athen Christopher (126 lbs) saw some varsity action, stepping up to wrestle for senior Ben Hilcz who suffered a shoulder injury against a Brebeuf opponent. Special congratulations go to Senior Chris Wilson who came away with 5 wins—including 4 pins. Coach Carrico recounted, “Wilson recently moved to the 170 pound weight class, and his hard work paid off. He looked rejuvenated. The whole team looked good, and we built momentum heading into conference this weekend.”
All are welcome to cheer for your Crusader wrestling team at the conference championships on Saturday, January 17 at 9:00 a.m. at Beech Grove High School.
