WCMS wrestling starts season strong

The Woodford County Middle School wrestling team competed in the KWOA Fall Classic on Saturday, Nov. 11 at Taylor County Middle School. The Tigers have a strong group of competitors this season led by Coach Jarvis Livingston.

“This is a terrific group of kids who work hard every day in the wrestling room,” said Livingston. “We have kids who come in and some of them have never tried wrestling but are naturals and others who need time to season. What we seek out is the kid who wants to learn the craft and grow as an athlete.”

Woodford County finished fourth as a team out of 21 entries to the event. McCracken County won the overall team event. Gavin Andreoni of Woodford County finished 2nd in the 113 pound division for the Tigers after a hard fought loss in the finals. Reece Goss beat Nathan Messina of John Hardin Middle School to win 3rd place in the 121 pound division. Jackson Geilear finished third in the 130 pound division.

Andrew Kartner was impressive finishing second in the 152 pound division and Grant Garrison fought his way to a second place in the 168 pound division. Rounding out the placers was Jeremiah Shulze who finished third in the 240 pound division.

“These kids impress me because we are not only building for their wrestling futures, they are also fantastic student-athletes and we want to make them successful outside of the wrestling room as well,” said Livingston. “There are many lessons that wrestling will provide for you and hopefully these kids will follow this sport into high school and maybe beyond that.”
