Wahama will replace Clay County in the Calhoun Quadrangular wrestling match
Tuesday afternoon starting at 1 p.m.
"Clay was going to come but just couldn’t work things out with their schedule,"
Calhoun wrestling coach Mike Stump said, "but we
were able to pick up Wahama."
Wahama joins Grafton, Roane County and Calhoun in the four-team affair. Each
team will wrestle the three other teams.
"Roane has really been coming on and they match up pretty well with us," Stump
said. "And, in these holiday things you really
aren’t sure how your guys are going to come in. We held a practice yesterday
(Saturday) to see how guys were going with weight
and everything, but you just don’t know until you get out there and wrestle."
Calhoun has done pretty well this season and is ranked fifth in the most recent
AA-A coaches wrestling poll. The Red Devils are
8-1 in dual matches and finished third – the top AA-A team – in the recent Point
Pleasant Olympic Pool Tournament.
Two Red Devils – Eric Metz and Justin Ashley – are both undefeated at 15-0 this
