Scottie wrestlers gain season experience at Wagner Duals

Mark Trask

The Philip wrestling team traveled to Wagner to compete in the State "B" Dual Championships. The Scotties competed against the top "B" schools in the state as a team; no individual championships were held.

Philip placed 10th, out of the 11 teams participating.

The opportunity to compete against and gain experience from heavier opponents presented itself when open weight divisions could be filled by different Scottie wrestlers.
