Two Western Reserve Academy wrestlers competed at the National Preps, which concluded Feb. 25 at Lehigh University in Bethlehem, Pa.
Jayden Demmy finished 2-2 at 182 pounds and Sammy Toggas lost both of his matches at 132 pounds.
"Jayden had a great performance," Pioneers head coach John Gordon said. "He lost 3-2 to a returning All-American. He was winning 2-1 with nine seconds left, but he got taken down. It was a heartbreaker. If he would have won, he would have been an All-American.
"Sammy got great experience for the days ahead. Their participation was good visibility for the program and the school. Four nationally ranked teams were among the teams in the field."
