Calhoun High wrestlers entered the WV State Wrestling Tournament with 12 wrestlers and finished the first evening of competition with 11 wins - in 1st place in the A/AA division.
The second day proved quite challenging for the Red Devils with several wrestlers being knocked out of competition and the team slowly watched their lead fade away.
In the end, after three days of exciting, nail biting action, the Red Devils finished in third place with one champion and five place winners.
