Over Valentine’s weekend, Brentwood’s Varsity Boys Wrestling team packed up and headed down to New Madrid, Missouri, to compete in the Class 1 District 1 tournament. With a 3-0 standing, they were more than prepared to do their best at districts. And they definitely proved that. Brentwood came 2nd place overall, with many of our wrestlers finishing in high spots. Eleven wrestlers qualified for sectionals, which will be happening this coming weekend.

Cody Hughes, a senior at Brentwood, was featured in the St. Louis Post Dispatch’s Athlete of the Week article, which commended him for his wrestling accomplishments.

Keep up the excellent work, Brentwood wrestlers, and good luck in sectionals and state!
