West York Wrestling
2009 Wilson Tourney Summary by Head Coach Brad Brosius
As sent to Don Lehman
Here are the results of the Wilson Tournament. The coaching staff felt the kids wrestled
well. Jacob Gemmill finished second, losing a heartbreaker in the finals! Jacob was
ahead 4-0 in the second period when he made a mistake and got caught in a headlock
and was pinned. I don't have all of the pin times or the final team score (posted 26th)
but I believe we finished in 26th place. Wilson posted the final results on their website.
