On Wednesday January 5, Corry’s boys wrestling team went face to face with the Maplewood Tigers. The match was a white out, but more importantly it was senior night. This year our seniors consist of Hayden Linkerhof, Hunter Savitz, Damion Kinney, Kayden Reyda, and Xavier Reyda. Our boys put 150 percent into their performances after years of hard work. Which all was shown off within their performances at the event.

The night started off with the weight class of 120 continuing until 160. There were a couple forfeits seeing how Maplewood was missing some of their teammates. The night was filled with vigorous battles between the pairs. Every boy from both teams put up an amazing battle on the mat as well as off. The sportsmanship was above and beyond on both sides among the boys, coaches, and the supporters in the stands. The environment was beyond astounding, especially when one of our boys got the pin.

The night came to an end with the final score of 51-9 Corry.  Congratulations to all the boys on their win Wednesday night. But I have to give special recognition to our five seniors, who have worked extremely hard over the years to get to where they are today.  A final congratulations to our Corry Beavers for taking the victorious win against the Maplewood Tigers.
