Wrestler of the Week

Carlinville freshman 138-pounder Tucker Hughes is the Cubby Hole  Wrestler of the Week. After a hard fought loss in the semi-finals, Tucker pinned James Gwartney of Pittsfield to place third at the Belleville Althoff regional last Saturday to extend his season another week. Since coming back from injury at the start of the new year, Hughes has continued to improve and work hard in the practice room. He now takes his 12-11 record to the Carterville Sectional this weekend. Six Cavaliers advanced to sectionals as individual competitiors, and the team was fifth at the Althoff Regional.
