Three GHS grapplers grabbed the bronze. Leading the way was Jack Freheit in the 152-pound weight class, as he went 4-1 on the day and had three of his victories via the pinfall. At 170, Justin Montier took home third by going 4-1. Mitchell Nethercott also went 4-1 on the day in the 195-pound weight class, but all his victories came by pinning his opponent.
