Boys Varsity Wrestling · Wrestling: Young Devils finding their legs in early season


By Kris Freeman for White House Blue Devils

The White House wrestling has had three matches in the early season and competed in the prestigious Harpeth Invitational Tournament on Saturday, with only two wrestlers able to get a win in a very tough field.

Aiden Rogers picked up a victory in the 132-pound class and Tyler Hammond in the 120.

“That is a very tough tournament for young wrestlers,” said White House head coach Mark Lamberth. “It’s a long growth process that you must go through to be good in this sport. Tyler and Aiden both got wins and that’s very big for a freshman at this tourney.”
