Coach Lynch knew Monday night was going to be a battle. Hartsville defeated North Augusta 37-36 on Saturday to advance to the Second Round of the State Playoffs against May River. May River is one of the top seeds in the Lower State and has built a strong wrestling team.
Hartsville fell short on Monday night losing 58-18 to May River. Winning for the Red Foxes were:
Noah Gilbert by pin at 126
Diquez McNeal by decision at 138
Logan Berger by pin at 145 (Region Champ, Defending State Champion)
Alex Hunt by decision at 152 (Region Champ)
The season is now over for the team side. However, 9 Red Fox wrestlers qualified for the State Individual Tournament that will begin on Feb. 27 in Bluffton. Good Luck Red Foxes!
