ROCKFORD — The Rochelle Township High School varsity wrestling team finished eighth out of 13 teams at the Rockford East Wrestling Invite on Saturday, with six Hub grapplers taking home fourth place honors.

“It’s nice to have that many people placing in a tournament,” Rochelle head coach Rich Harvey said, “but it also would have been nice to have a few of those guys place higher. We were in position to send a few kids to the finals, we just ended up losing some really close matches.”

TC Hager won his first two matches of the day, pinning Riley Leitner of Metamora in 1:20 and defeating Josh Dodge of Geneseo 8-3 by decision, but it was Jeff Board and Will Lawhorn that led Rochelle in scoring. Board and Lawhorn’s bye in the first round meant the team points they would score in the second round would be doubled. Fortunately for the pair, they each pinned their opponents in the second round, which led to 13 team points. Board pinned Austin Anderson of Freeport in 3:44 and Lawhorn pinned Andres Gonzales of Guerin in 1:27.
