Beavers do well at MIT

MEDINA — Beaver Local’s wrestling team tackled some tough competition on Wednesday and Thursday at the Medina Invitational Tournament.

Beaver Local finished 10th in the very deep field which featured top talent from around the state.

“The MIT is known to be one of the toughest tournaments in the state,” Beaver Local wrestling coach Jordan Williams said. “You have to come in and compete at a high level. Our kids battled and competed the last two days. As a team our effort and focus were at a high level.”

For the Beavers, Cole McComas took fourth at 120, while Skyler Lasure was fourth at 132. Logan Krulik was sixth at 160.
