  • Barrington Sectional

    Just came home from Barrington Sectional. In my opinion, the best HS venue to see a wrestling tournament. Highlights for me were,
    1.Joel Vandervere, wrestling at such a high level, showing as he did at regional, no lingering effects of his leg injury.
    2.Brody Halin, 138lb freshman from McHenry, won an extremely exciting match in OT against very talented Jaylen Beals of Zion Benton.
    3.Jason Bickers of Stevenson, who demonstrated as his coach, Shane Cook said, It aint over till it is over. Down 13-0, he came back to score a pin late in the 3rd.
    4. Peter Kafkis, 120 from Libertyville, who in his two victories, never seemed to be out of position and won his quarterfinal match with a pin in the last 3 seconds.
    5. Matrece Smith, 145 from Zion Benton, who scored a second period pin after having an amazing grueling first period, where so much energy was spent that I could not believe that it was all in one period.
    I could go on and name another dozen or more but alas, need to get some sleep because I am off to Bolingbrook, tomorrow.
