Hello BHS Wrestling Family!
It was a big weekend of wrestling starting with Senior Night on Friday in the Barrington Gym. We hosted Conant for our last home dual meet of the year and the varsity won the meet in convincing fashion. After the freshman team rolled and the JV lost a tight one, the varsity came away with a 44-16 win over the Cougars. The varsity finished divisional meets with a 5-0 record winning the MSL West for the third year in a row brining their division record to 15-0 the past three seasons.
Friday was also senior manager Will Karsten's debut as he wrestled a "varsity" match against Conant before the dual began. It was a great night of wrestling for all. The news story is below in case you missed it:
Saturday, the Broncos wrestled three other top rated teams and opened the day with a tough 33-27 loss to Glenbard North. The Broncos responded with a nice, 42-21 win over Neuqua Valley before falling 39-18 to Lockport in the final dual of the day. Dayven Shinhoster, Farouk Shaaban, and Jack Hartman made it through the meat grinder of a weekend undefeated. The varsity is now 23-3 with one dual meet remaining.
The junior varsity went 2-1 on Saturday beating Grant and Warren in the process while the freshman were idle.

Lastly, the Mat Club is attempting to purchase two, new practice mats for the wrestling gym for next year. The current mats are from the 1990's and we are in need of new ones. Everyone has been very generouse with the fundraising this year, so please let me know if you know someone who would like to doante to the cause. The cost of the mats is near $26,000 and we have a good portion raised. We need a few more thousand and we will reach our goal.
See You Friday,
