The MTOWA Grand Championships were held Saturday January 23rd in Nolensville at the Nolensville High School. This tournament is for JV and freshman wrestlers. Heritage sent five JV wrestlers and two freshman. The morning event was for JV. Sophomore M. Park came away with one win, and 8th grader A. Taylor came away with one win.
They faired better in the afternoon with the freshmen. M. Coffin came away with one win, and N. Taylor came home with a medal in the freshmen 145 weight class. Taylor won his first match in the 16 man bracket against Oakland. He fell to Ravenwood in the second round bumping him out of contention for first. In his next two rounds he pinned the freshmen from Battle Ground Academy and Green Hills. Round five he won due to forfeit. Going into the final round for 3rd, his opponent from West Creek had already wrestled 5 rounds and had to forfeit. Taylor was disappointed with the forfeits, but only lost one match all day.
The Patriots host team regionals on Tuesday the 26th.
