Wrestling is scored using a point system, where the total scores of each of the 14 weight categories are added together for a team score.
Dutchess King went 3-0 on the day in the 106 pound category. Markel May and Daivion Howard also went 3-0 on the night in the 113 and 160 pound categories, respectively. Coach Mike Tisza said he currently only has varsity wrestlers in about half of the weight categories, meaning TFS forfeits point for every category they don’t have a wrestler for.
Athlete of the Week
This week’s Athlete of the Week was varsity boys basketball player Xavier Lewis. Assistant Athletic Director Doug Smith said, “Xavier has been a member of the varsity basketball team for four seasons. According to Coach Gillespie, Xavier is a great example of a leader, on the court, and in the classroom.”
