SPARTA — After a solid showing in the Bad Apple Brawl last week, the Fredericktown wrestling team was looking to make a big splash at the Jeremy Ammons Kilted Klassic.
The Freddies got one individual championship and two runner-up finishes to finish third in the 16-team invitational Saturday at Highland.
“We overachieved. That’s the best way to say it,” said Fredericktown coach Jordan Cramer. “Last week, we did a very good job in Mount Vernon (8th). We wanted to continue that momentum here. We really pushed for it.
“The competition seemed a lot better this year. Other teams brought their A game. I think we met the challenge.”
Fredericktown finished with 233 points, edging out Highland, which came in fourth at 222. Lima Bath won the invitational with 313 points, followed by Medina’s “A” team at 264. East Knox finished 10th with 127 points and Danville was 14th with 67.
Carson Mills won an individual championship for the Freddies at 120 pounds. He was able to beat Highland’s Mike Stewart in a rematch of last year’s championship, 3-2. Mills got a takedown as time was expiring to break a 1-1 tie and secure the victory.
