The Florence wrestling team bused over to Huntsville High for the 39th Annual Huntsville Invitational this past weekend. The semi-seasoned varsity wrestlers faced some stiff competition but managed to still come away with seventeen wins; nearly a dozen of them came by pin.
First year seventh through ninth grade wrestlers competed, many in their first ever matches this weekend. Among the ten competing Florence wrestlers, three took home medals: Jacob Grijalva (165)- Tournament Champion; Todd Askew (195)- 3rd Place; C.J. Davis (135)- 4th place. However, perhaps the biggest win came when Florence ninth grader Jahkari Young helped an injured wrestler from an opposing team get back to his seat; it was a tremendous show of sportsmanship.
