The Fairbury wrestling team headed to Bennington on New Year’s Eve to compete in the Badger duals. Fairbury placed third out of six teams behind the Bellevue East Chieftains and the Bennington Badgers.
Damian Green, Paul Mach, Jacob Johnson, and Austin Barnts all went undefeated winning all five of their matches. It was the first competition after winter break.
“I thought that we’d be in the hunt for a team title…Bennington was rated fifth in the state for class B and Bellevue is rated 8th in class A so we knew that both those would be tough duals,” said Coach Derek Garfield.
