Bolts’ Mat Men place 7th at Fairfield 

By Ron Nunnari –

FAIRFIELD — Northmont’s varsity wrestling team turned in a strong performance Jan. 5 and 6 to place 7th out of 21 teams at the Ron Masanek Fairfield Invitational.

Finishing in the top third of the field was all the more impressive given the fact that the Thunderbolts had only 10 wrestlers compete. Four of the ten placed in the tournament.

“It is the first time I can remember in a long time that we had four guys in the finals win all four of their matches,” said Northmont Coach Scott Newburg.

Senior Dylan Moran won the 195 championship match by scoring a 10-5 decision over Max Boyle of Harrison.
