SHS grapplers compete at Fricker’s Duals

DEFIANCE – Facing a difficult field with an undermanned squad, the Swanton wrestling team went winless at the Fricker’s Duals Friday and Saturday at Defiance College.

Swanton fell to Richmond, Michigan 63-16, Otsego 53-24, Perrysburg 75-3, Archbold 52-22, River Valley 60-18, Ashland 58-16, Ayersville 39-20, Wauseon 60-15, Detroit Catholic Central 56-14, and Elmwood 36-16.

The Bulldogs had several empty weight classes in each match, leading to forfeits. Against Otsego, both teams actually won four contested matches. Victorious in that dual for Swanton were Brodie Stevens, Tyler Gowing, Ian Saunders, and Xavier Wiemken.

Those four had strong showings overall for the weekend as well.
