This past weekend, Pope Wrestling completed a strong performance at the 2019 State 6A Traditional meet by sending 11 wrestlers who finished State Runners-up. Seven of the 11 wrestlers placed in the top 6 accumulating enough points to finish 2nd.
The Pope grapplers were led in Macon by Max Druhot (120) and Alex Hearn (126) who finished as individual state runners-up. Following these two were were Troy Gable (145) and Chris Sheahan (195). Finishing in 4th place was Joey Robinson (106) and Andrew Barner (152). And finally, Patrick Haskin (132) finished in 5th place.
What a tremendous effort by these young men and their coaches as they improved from a 5th place finish at the State Duals. This outstanding accomplishment will be signified very soon with a new year added to their state runner up banner in the new gym.
