The NP-Liberty wrestling team (3-14) claimed a 10th place finish at the District 4AA Section North meet with three wrestlers taking home top four finishes in their bracket on Saturday, Feb. 15 in Troy.
The Mounites were led in Troy by a duo of juniors and a surprisingly excellent showing from freshman Braydon Garverick who was able to grab a fourth place finish in the 113-pound class during the meet.
As they have all season, the Mounties wrestlers were led by junior Logyn Choplosky who took home fourth place in the 285-pound bracket and currently sits with a 16-11 record in the heavyweight division.
Patriot June also took home a fourth place finish, and fell just short of reaching third place as Aidan Garcia topped him in the final section of the 126-pound consolation bracket by a score of 11-3.
The NP-Liberty Mounties wrestlers are hitting stride near the end of the season, and have only two seniors on the roster and have been able to rely on some of the younger core wrestlers this season.
Seniors Roger Learn (18-6) and Mitchael Tice (8-19) both will be tough to replace for the Mounties, but the development of some of the younger competitors should bode well for the future of the NP-Liberty wrestling program.
