Gilbert’s Class 2A fourth-ranked wrestling team finished second at the Cardinal Holiday Classic tournament last weekend at Cardinal Newman.
The Indians made a run at host Cardinal Newman for the tournament championship, but came up a bit short against the defending SCISA champions. CN claimed first place with 186 points, with Gilbert closing with 175 points.
“I was really pleased with the way we competed as a whole, especially with us being so young overall,” said Tribe coach Tracy Gooding.
“With only three seniors in the lineup, I hope the performance on Saturday will go along way in giving our guys some confidence the remainder of the year.”
