Mt. Vernon Sends 4 Wrestlers to Semistate!

By way of winning their opening round match at last week’s IHSAA Regional, 4 MVHS wrestlers have earned the opportunity to compete at this weekend’s IHSAA Semistate action hosted by Jasper High School.  Ritzert, Newman, Hook and Schmidt are all one weekend away from punching their respective tickets to the IHSAA State Finals!  To qualify for the State Finals, they need to place in the top 4 in their weight class at Jasper.

Tickets are limited to this event due to the number of competitors and current COVID guidelines.  TrackWrestling will cover the event for those who would like a pay-per-view option:  http://trackwrestling.com . –> Browse –> Tournaments–> IHSAA Semi-State @ Jasper {or try this direct link:  https://www.trackwrestling.com/predefinedtournaments/MainFrame.jsp?newSession=false&TIM=1613079542227&pageName= }
