A pair of freshmen once again anchored the Loy Norrix wrestling team during a Wednesday night dual with Mattawan.
While the Knights (3-7) lost the overall matchup, 51-19, freshmen Jake Wayman and Leo Galasso both improved to 16-1 in what head coach Alex Hill called dominant fashion.
Wrestling at 125 pounds, Wayman defeated Mattawan’s Logan Melvin with a pin at 3:37. Galasso, wrestling at 145 pounds, defeated Andrew Ropp of Mattawan, 21-6.
Also winning for the Knights were Ismael Enriquez at 140 pounds, as well as Roy Brittney at 152 pounds. In a text message to JoeInsider, coach Hill said that the win for Britney avenged a loss to Mattawan’s Griffin Drown in his most recent match. Enriquez used a double leg takedown with 15 seconds left in the match against Justin Ringling to come from behind to secure an 11-9 win.
