Jack Jones’ championship at 145 pounds highlighted the Constantine wrestling team’s trip to Bloomingdale Saturday.
Joining Jones as medal winners were Boe Eckman, who was runner-up at 189, Isaac Hall, who finished third at 171, and Matt Hutton, who was third at heavyweight.
Individual match results were not reported.
“All and all it wasn’t a bad day,” Constantine coach Dale Davidhizar said. “We started off pretty slow but really picked it up in the second half of the tournament. I’m very proud of the way some of the kids wrestled today and left everything on the mat.
“Our freshmen really stepped up and had very good days again today and continue to push themselves and get better every week. The upperclassmen continue to lead the underclassmen even through injuries and illness. Jack Jones had a good day and is really excelling on and off the mat. Boe Eckman also had a good day wrestling 189 as a freshman but coming up a bit short. He continues to work toward his goals for the year.”
