Cass wrestling honors seniors
The Cass High School wrestling team made a late run Wednesday, but came up short against visiting North Hall on the Colonels’ senior night, 42-30.
Cass trailed the Trojans by a large margin early, but narrowed the gap to 36-30 going into the final match.
Seniors and defending state champions Tripp Breeden and Seven Richards pinned their opponents early in the match. Senior teammate Tyler Pilcher also picked up a win.
First-year wrestler and senior Tyrese Dawson was also honored with Breeden, Richards, and Pilcher prior to the match.
North Hall, with one of the top programs in Class AAA, took their lead in the middle portion of the match. The Trojans took advantage of four Cass forfeits, a pair of pins, and one other decision.
For the Colonels, Pilcher, Kameron DePasquale, Kendall Arnold, Noah Hoffmeier, and Rett Moore added victories down the stretch, but it was not enough to overcome the early lead built by the Trojans.
Cass wrestles Thursday, Dec. 14 at Adairsville and will travel to the Chattanooga-McCallie Invitational December 15.
