“Not too bad, there were some bright spots. Nate Anderson picked up a huge win, other guys wrestled very well. We also left with some areas where we need to improve,” Cooper said.

Since North is East’s cross-town rival the stakes were high for both teams. The match started with a win from Liam Krueger winning by forfeit. In the final ten contested bouts, East had a run of nine wins, leading them to the victory. Coach Cooper entails the mindset of the team before the match.

“We approach the north meet as a chance to showcase our team to the city of Columbus and the wrestling community,” Cooper said. “Of course, we want to do well and win, but our goals as a team are much larger than the Columbus North victory.”
