Whitman qualified six wrestlers for the State Tournament which is held in Cole Field House at the University of Maryland.
Seniors Eric Harder and Andrew Follmann capped fantastic careers each with a second consecutive placing in the top 6th. Eric wrestled extremely well in placing 3rd at States for the second consecutive year. Each year Eric’s only loss at States came to the eventual State Champion. Andrew matched Eric’s 4 wins at the State Tournament in placing 4th for the second consecutive year. Andrew capped off his career as a 4 year varsity starter with 115 wins. Eric finished his 3 years on Varsity with 95 career wins.
Senior Mike Harder and Senior Ned Daryoush narrowly missed out on placing. Both wrestlers went 2-2 at the State Tournament. Joining them was Junior Josh Daryoush who also went 2-2. Junior, Region Champ, Brad Taylor went 1-1. Unfortunately he was injured in his second match on Friday night and was unable to continue on Saturday.
Congrats to all Whitman wrestlers and all the Whitman State placers and qualifiers for having a fantastic season!!
