Wrestling team result

The Wrestling team had an excellent showing at the Division I Central Sectional Tournament Newton South entered 10 wrestlers and had 6 of them place and 2 wrestlers are CHAMPIONS!  Congratulations to Adam Bernhardt (138 lb) and Phillip Amitan (145 lb) on capturing the sectional title at their respective weight class.  All of that hard work is paying off just at the right time.  Other place winners were Mark Nazzro (5th), Akiva Lind (5th), Zachary Wagner (5th), and Sun Wangsakan (6th).  The top four place winners move on to next week’s Division I State Tournament and 5th place is the alternate.  This past weekend, Adam reached the 30 win mark for the season and has 99 career wins.  He is one win away from becoming only the 3rd wrestler at Newton South to reach the 100 career win milestone.  Phillip got his 20th win on the season as well.
