Home Fauquier HS
The Fauquier wrestling team had its Senior Night with five seniors on hand in the Falcons nest to face the #3 ranked team in the state of Virginia, but could not hold off the Bobcats as they fell 37-30 on Friday.
Fauquier (9-12 for the season) won the first match by pin to take the lead and go up 6-0 as the score would then draw even 6-6 after the second bout.
With 120 lbs Junior Kyle Budd winning by a decision over Beau Curtis (Bat.) 4-2 and 126 lbs Ethan Jordan fault for a victory over Jackson Burns (Bat.) 11-8 as the Falcons would then improve to a 12-6 match lead.
The Bobcats earned a pin at 132 lbs to once again square the match up 12-12 as the 138 lbs match would be a key match for Fauquier as Senior Cam Franklin would earn a major decision over Shea McCormic (Bat.) 14-2. Franklin lost to McCormic at the Virginia Duals earlier this month as this would be a much-improved match for Franklin as Fauquier would once again take the match lead 16-12.
The next two bouts team Fauquier would fall as the Battlefield would finally jump out to a 16-22 lead for the first time.
