Eagle grapplers soaring to numerous victories; CNE and Amelia turning in stellar tourney performances

Milford’s varsity wrestling team has been registering the most impressive scores and statistics among Clermont County’s nine varsity squads.

“They’re doing pretty well,” said coach Jim Costello of his varsity Eagles who are 10-2 in dual competition.

Costello is anxious to get his entire line-up together for the first time this season. The Red and White have been forfeiting the 171 and 189 pound weight classes, but the two matmen are back who are expected to very capably fill those divisions. Senior T. J. O’Connell will be returning to compete at 171 and senior Dan Tepe who began the campaign winning three of four matches and pinning one adversary is coming back from an injury.

“Having these guys coming back will help us out a lot,” said Costello. “Up to now I think we were doing about as good as I thought having had to forfeit 171 and 189.”
