Another primetime bout of the night featured LCC’s Bobby Sunderhaus defeating Wrasman 6-2. Wrestling wrapped up with the shortest
St. John’s coach Derek Sterling was pleased with his squad’s performance against their Allen County foes.
“We didn’t wrestle our best but it’s only December and our kids faced some tough competition tonight,” he noted.
He is also looking forward to meeting up with some new competition, having gone against some of the same wrestlers twice in a span of 5 days.
“I’m looking forward to matching up with some different wrestlers at Marion Harding after Christmas that our kids don’t know much about. Facing new wrestlers that we haven’t met up with before during this season brings new experience that will make our wrestling program stronger,” he added.
Wrestling at the Marion Harding Classic begins on Dec. 28 and concludes on Dec. 29.
