IESA Sectional Wrestling Tournament was held on March 3rd at Middle South.
Middle South entered the day with 10 wrestlers qualifying for the Sectional with an opportunity to qualify for the IESA State tournament. The sectional brackets are unbelievably difficult, as they each represent the top 8 wrestlers at each weight from an original field of 42 wrestlers at each weight.
From these remaining 8 wrestlers in each weight class, only the top 3 wrestlers advance to the state tournament. This means that each State Qualifier now finds themselves in elite company being a part of the top 24 wrestlers in the state at their respective weight classes. Hawthorn Middle South was able to advance 5 of our 10 to the State Tournament. Sectional place finishes were as follows:
Will L. (90 lbs)- CHAMPION
Jake P. (126 lbs)- 2nd Place
Blake M. (135 lbs)- 3rd Place
Omar V. (145 lbs)- 3rd Place
Hector E. (275 lbs)- CHAMPION
