Regional wrestling update

POLO – On the strengths of its lower weights, Princeton will be sending four wrestlers to this week’s Byron Class 1A sectional. Tyler Wood (106), Luke Marselle (113), Austin Wetsel (120) and Casey Pierre (182) extended their seasons at least one more week by picking up second or third place finishes at the Polo regional.

St. Bede had one qualifier in senior James Peacock, placing second at 132-pounds. That makes it four straight trips to the sectional for Peacock, who is still looking for his first berth downstate.

Lena-Winslow won the meet with 241 points, easily out-distancing Sterling Newman, who had 126.5. In a close battle for fourth place, Polo (94) edged West Carroll (92) and Princeton (90.5).
