Sentinels Split Tri - Get to 19 wins!

In a night of big ups and downs, the Fort Hill wrestling team overcame a 60 - 18 lost to FSK in spoiling North Hagerstown's Regional Duals hopes by defeating them 42-39. It also helped the Sentinels reach a team record 19 Dual meet wins in a season. Something that they have been shooting for all year! Now it is in the books!

It was befitting that the record was broken on the final dual match of the year which also happened to be Senior Night. The fans had an opportunity to honor and show their apprecaition to Seniors Daniel Leasure, Jacob Appel, Shawn Wolfe, and Zack Valentine and their families.

Going into the final bout Fort Hill was losing 36-39 at the 285lb class. Senior Daniel Leasure had been in this position several other times and chose that night to wrestle one of his best matches of his career to obtain a pin and secure the 42-39 win for the Sentinels! Senior Shawn Wolfe also had a great night by pinning both of his opponents and going 2-0 for the night. Juniors Glen Vincent and Andrew Doyle also pinned both of their opponents that night.
