No bones about this.
Lake Norman’s wrestling team made sure to garner its share of the attention in this season’s 20th annual Boneyard Bash.
Among near 30 teams from three state at Jack Britt High School in Fayetteville, the Wildcats housed a number of entries logging in among the top six positions all worthy of piling up points and crafted an official seventh-place finish.
Buoyed by wins racked up in a number of weight classes, the entry collected a total of 120.5 points to place seventh among the total of 27 teams tallying points of some sort during the event.
Lake Norman housed a trio of grapplers chiming in to finish third in their respective weight class ranks to highlight the performance.
At 120 pounds, the Wildcats’ Kaiden Fisher piled up a total of five wins to not only support his presence but also back his emergence as the winner of his division’s consolation round match.
At 138 pounds, Lake Norman’s Timmy Kennett banked a total of six wins to show for his bronze medal placement.
And at 170 pounds, Carson Floyd prevailed in all but one of his total of seven bouts overall to chime in with a third-place finish.
Lake Norman’s J.T. Richards at 126 pounds also made it as far as the consolation round finals before setting with a fourth-place finish.
AT heavyweight, the Wildcats’ Alex Baker merited a placement among his weight ranks’ top six to add to the team’s point total take.
Additional multiple-match winners for Lake Norman included Jeremiah Garcia at 106 pounds, Brody Neal at 113 pounds, Evan Chouinard at 145 pounds, Nyjel Goss at 220 pounds, and Hayden Fann at 132 pounds.
The Wildcats headed back out on the mats this week as part of a multi-team event involving guests from Southland Christian, Bandys and Mountain Island Charter in the LNHS gym Wednesday night.
