On Sunday coaches, nineteen Foxfire wrestlers, a photographer, and several parents traveled to Franklin, Ohio for the first annual Ohio Freestyle Duals. Coach Bostelman, did a great job leading the team. There was tough competition from ten dual meet teams across the state of Ohio made up of Cadets and Juniors. Lots of great matches. Five duals, Foxfire was 4-1 and finished as the State Duals runner-ups to a team named Seasons. In the fourth dual, Foxfire defeated Lake Erie by a score of 37-27 and in the final with Seasons the match was tied going into the final individual bout. Although Foxfire came out on the short end of the stick (35-30) it was a great day of competition. Gallery of 95 photos. High Res Photos at walmart.com.
