Braves’ Neher a late semi-state addition

February 7, 2013

    Bellmont's contingent for Saturday's Fort Wayne Snider Wrestling Semistate was boosted from three to four this week when Union City's Connor Wyatt pulled out because of injury at 152 pounds, putting the Braves' Logan Neher back in the field. Neher earned alternate status as he wrestled back to fifth place at Jay.
    "We had five guys wrestle back for fifth, and Neher gets to go, so I guess the alternate thing worked out for us," stated Bellmont coach Brent Faurote.
