The Chiefs defeated Williamsburg 54-25 and then fell 54-16 to Coldwater. The Raiders started off with a 56-12 loss to the Cavaliers, but bounced back with a 34-21 win against the Wildcats.

“Our main focus tonight was our approach,” said BHS head coach Rick Reed. “This is the second straight week I was really pleased with how we wrestled.

“The score against Coldwater is not pretty. If you were there, though, there were a lot of battles. In most matches we were coming on strong at the end and finishing with intensity. I’m really pleased with where our conditioning is at.”

Ben Logan head coach Tony Grant felt the opposite about his squad’s conditioning, but some of that had to do with the lack of practice time because because of weather cancellations this week.

“We did not look good and were out of shape,” said Grant. “With the weather, we suffered and it showed. We haven’t been able to condition at all the last six days.”
