The Collinsville wrestling team placed 10th at the prestigious William Red Schmitt Holiday Wrestling Tournament this week, a finish that pleased Head Coach Tom Blaha.

CHS wrestling logo“After losing seven seniors to graduation and facing a rebuilding year, I am quite happy with this team’s performance,” Blaha said. “To place two places higher and beat Granite City is quite an accomplishment with only four seniors in the lineup.”

The performance in the 54th annual version of the Granite City wrestling tournament was Collinsville’s best to day, Blaha said, and the first time the Kahoks placed ahead of the host Warriors.

Placers for the Kahoks were:
Zach Stephenson – 4th
Jacob Blaha – 6th
Derrion Miller and Aaron Engle -7th
Zach Hammel-Brown – 9th
Cole Zabala – 10th
Jevon Pargo, Patrick Grzywacz, Zach Schaefer and Jarod Estes – 11th.
Jordan May and Adam Gillespie – 12th
