The two-day tournament was an individual style tournament, featuring 32 teams from across the Commonwealth. Lancaster and Mathews were the only two Group A teams in the tournament, which was won by Mills Godwin.

“This was great experience for our team in an individual tournament of this size,” said LHS coach Craig Oren. “Moreover, it was an excellent opportunity for our wrestlers to see how they stack up against some great competition.”

Thomas Hyde, Grant Long and Beau Nickerson placed in the top eight for the Devils, while heavyweight Sam Bouis placed sixth and Kenique Stewart led Lancaster’s grapplers with a second-place finish for a silver medal.

“Despite the step up in competition, many of the wrestlers really put forth their best effort,” said LHS assistant Sam Terry.

The Red Devils will participate in the Mathews Duals on Saturday, January 25. Two weeks remain before the post season rounds begin on February 8 with the Conference #43 tournament at Rappahannock County High School.
