TROY – Greenville had five wrestlers place at the Troy Invitational on Saturday.
Greenville placed 10th out of 12 teams in the invitational, filling out eight of the 14 weight classes.
William Nibert was the runner up in the 182 pound class, Austin Lacey placed fifth in the 106 class, Christian Chalmers placed sixth in the 160 class, Dean Hurd placed sixth in the 113 class, and Jeremy Eshbaugh placed seventh in the 145 class.
“The boys continue to improve as the year goes by,” Greenville coach David Guillozet said. “This is the most competitive tournament we have been to thus far, and I was pleased with their performances.”
Guillozet was very happy with the performances of several Green Wave wrestlers.
“Christian Chalmers wrestled his best tournament this year,” Guillozet said. “Jeremy Eshbaugh had the most competitive weight class of the tournament and wrestled some really hard fought matches. William Nibert wrestled really well. His weight class was very competitive, also. The top four wrestlers in his weight class were very evenly matched as each of them had lost at least one match during the tournament.”
Greenville will compete in an invitational at Milton-Union on Saturday.
“We still have lots of work to do with being so young and inexperienced, and as long as we stay healthy and continue to work hard in practice then we should do fine the rest of the season,” Guillozet said.
