This past weekend the Coyotes boys’ wrestling team hit the mat for the Region 6 Class AA Tournament at Springfield High School. The squad finished third as a team with 168.5 points behind Clarksville High School (216.5) and Rossview High School (191).

Furnas (Scott Hoskins)

Garrett Furnas, wrestling at 12o pounds, and Joshua Ward, wrestling at 195 pounds, claimed championships in their respective weight classes.

Furnas, the defending champion from 2021-2022, repeated his feat. “It felt good after winning it last year, too,” he said. He credits his teammates for pushing him. “All of them have been there for me since last year when I transferred from Fort Campbell. They’ve seen me at my highest and lowest.”

He has high hopes for a match against the #5 wrestler in his weight class in the state. “I’ve been working hard. I’ve been way more focused than I was last year.”

Joshua Ward (Emma Valiente)

Ward has similar feelings. “I felt really good, and honestly, all my hard work really paid off,” Ward said. He credits his teammates for “pushing me past my limits and helping me throughout the year.” He knows that his upcoming matches this weekend will be a challenge.

“I’m going to have to put in a lot of work,” Ward said.

Other Coyote wrestlers who placed:

126 pounds-4th, Aiden Renken

132 pounds-4th, Evan Avila; 5th, Craig Sudderth

138 pounds-3rd, Ty Hutchens

169 pounds-2nd, Mason Fierge

182 pounds-3rd, Standford Thompson

285 pounds-4th, Aydan Andalon

The next step on the road to the state championship will be next Saturday at Antioch High School, in Antioch.
