The Ringgold wrestling team hosted Slippery Rock on Wednesday night in their final home match of the season. It was also Youth Night, Alumni Night, and Senior Night and many members of the Ram wrestling community were recognized prior to the match.
Ringgold jumped out to a big lead, 33-0, before Slippery Rock would get on the board. The Rams lead would eventually move to 36-6 midway through the match.
Earning victories for Ringgold were: Tairen Bundy (pin), Ashton Slavick (pin), Leslie Martinez (forfeit), Anthony Romasco (pin), Logan Vickers (forfeit), Jacob Duncan (decision) and Trent Gerard (decision).
Slippery Rock wouldn’t go away, however and came storming back to cut the deficit to 36-30 heading into the heavyweight match. Unfortunately Alex Grossi got pinned, allowing Slippery Rock to tie the match at 36.
The tiebreaker was determined by individual bout wins, and Ringgold prevailed having won 7 bouts to Slippery Rock’s 6.
Ringgold will be back in action next Wednesday, traveling to West Mifflin for an exhibition match beginning at 7:00pm.
