The Middlesex High School wrestling team finished 10th among 13 schools at the Amelia Raider Wrestling Tournament at Amelia High School last Saturday.

MHS head coach Lee Anderson said that six of the participants were Group AAA high schools and there were only three Group A schools in the competition.  “The best thing that happened at the meet was that an official came up to me and said, ‘Your Middlesex wrestlers were the best behaved and most respectable wrestlers we have seen in years,’ “ said Anderson. “I’m very proud of our team.”

Highlights of the meet were that MHS wrestler Josh Helmich won his first high school match 4-0 over a Nottaway High School wrestler in the 112-pound division, and Nat Wood tied the MHS school record for the fastest pin in history— 10 seconds.

MHS’s Reese Harris placed second in the 285-pound division and Craig Conley was third in the 189-pound division.

The Chargers will visit Amelia High School at 4 p.m. on Wednesday, January 20.
