“We had a solid day and saw a lot of positives heading into league next week,” said BHS head coach Aaron LaBatt. “We showed a little more grit and reacted better in tight situations. Zavier reached his first high school finals and has been wrestling pretty well. Jared had a nice day with a few big wins under his belt and Zane showed a lot of fight in a tough weight class. We were also excited to see Conor Evans get another win. He has been working hard and it’s showing.”
