Placeholder Image
For the first time since 2001, the Warren County High School wrestling team is in danger of being left out of the state tournament.A string of 10 straight years having one Pioneer qualify for state was in jeopardy midway through Saturday as a young wrestling team had its share of struggles in the Region V tournament being held at Charlie Dalton Gym.No Pioneer made it through Friday night still in the winner’s bracket, and by press time Saturday, only one wrestler had a shot of advancing through the consolation bracket to make it to the top four.Nick Sangi was still one loss away from elimination as the afternoon matches began Saturday. Sangi had advanced to the final eight in the 220-pound division by winning an 8-5 decision against David Rangel from Smyrna early Saturday morning. His next match, and the finals of the weight class, were completed after press time.Sangi won Friday night as well.
