Eight Broken Bow wrestlers place at Invite

Staff Writer

The Broken Bow wrestling team was one of 14 teams that competed at the Aquinas Catholic Wrestling Invite Jan. 9, 2016. Eight of the eleven Broken Bow Indians medaled. Two of them took first place in their divisions.

The eight wrestlers and their places are:

Caleb Smith, 4th in 106
Spencer Gaffney, 1st in 113
Clayton Glendy, 1st in 120
Cole Ulmer, 3rd in 126
Joel Myers, 3rd in 132
Tommy McCormick, 2nd in 195
Drew Drake, 4th in 220
Scott Davis, 2nd in 285

The Broken Bow team did very well considering some of them got sick at the meet and others were out due to injuries. Bow wrestling Coach Schaaf said it was a good tournament. He said they got to see a tough David City Aquinas team and lots of schools from the eastern part of the state and the varied competition will benefit them later on in the season.
