BRENTWOOD – The Fairview High School wrestling team continued to impress with another strong showing Saturday at the GP West Invitational at Brentwood High.
The Yellow Jackets, who hosted and battled some of the state’s best last week in the first Yellow Jacket Invitational at home, collected a third-place showing in Saturday’s 10-team tournament.
Wilson Central claimed five individual titles and won the team crown with 297.5 points, while Blackman (203) was second and Fairview third (178) to beat out Beech (149) and Arlington (133.5) among others.
Wilson Central also won the team title at Fairview last week in another trip to the county.
Ken Curtis and Jacob Clevenger both won tournament titles to lead the Yellow Jackets. The 182-pound sophomore Curtis improved to 29-1 overall and pinned Matthew Hills of Wilson Central in the second round of the final.
Clevenger, a 220-pound junior, avenged his only loss suffered last week against Wilson Central’s Noah Todd by pinning Todd early in the second round of his final.
Fairview senior Riley Bennett fell by a 12-4 major decision against Wilson Central’s Riley Fort in a battle of returning state medalists in the 138-pound final. Both Marco Pukl (170) and Sam Hammon (285) captured third-place finishes for the Yellow Jackets as well.
Other top finishers from the county included Centennial’s Ceron Campbell (145) and Patrick Styblo (195), who both closed third along with Brentwood’s Andrew Donelson at 132.
