This is the 1st year for the SHERRARD CLASSIC....it may be back next year as a 2-day tournament; several other teams wanted to enter this year, but we were limited by the 1-day 5-matches format.
The tournament got off to a bit of a rocky start: Independence lost one of their vans and the officials board shorted us an official. But luckily, we recruited an official from one of the table crews and things ran smoothly.
3 mats, 15 matches...started at 10 and finished wrestling and handing out awards by 4...
INDIVIDUAL CHAMPIONS: Independence had 5 , Central Preston 4, Sherrard and Moundsville 2 each, and Ripley MS 1.
Independence had a well-rounded team and their strength in the upper weights told the tale. They won 4 fairly closely-contested duals of the 5. Most of the matches were filled with intense action and a LOT of good wrestling was seen.
The SHERRARD CLASSIC was somewhat of a rehersal for the SHERRARD DUALS which will be held in 3 weeks.
Thanks to all the teams and their coaches for their fine sportsmanship and wrestling. The 2 Ripley teams, Independence and Central Preston all put in many miles to take part in the tournament.
Independence will be back at the SHERRARD DUALS, along with Sherrard, Cameron, Charles Town, Moundsville, Harpers Ferry, and Fairmont Miller. They will be joined by Wirt County, East Fairmont, Ripley MS, Ripley 9th, and Union.
