Missing three wrestlers in their lineup, the Grizzlies battled for a respectable 6th place. Edwards and Sorrentino were tournament runner up and champion.
Injury and illness were major concerns for the Grizzlies this weekend. Creekview traveled to Whitewater to face many of the same teams that were at State Duals last week. With pool play on Friday night and brackets on Saturday, the Grizzlies were able to overcome a three wrestler deficit to place in the top 6. Sorrentino and Edwards made it into the finals with a championship for Sorrentino and a runner up finish for Edwards. Six Grizzlies in all made top 8 finishes: Joseph Sorrentino (182 Lbs) 1st Place Michael Edwards (138 Lbs) 2nd Place Justin Pettyjohn (152 Lbs) 4th Place Hunter Smith (160 Lbs) 5th Place Ryan Camp (106 Lbs) 6th Place Christian Saragusa (220 Lbs) 6th Place Brock Tupman (285 Lbs) 7th Place
