BHS Wrestling Team Opens with Bumps and Bruises

Blythewood’s Micah Cohen pins Keenan’s Allen Forbes to the mat during last week’s match.

The Blythewood Bengals wrestling team opened up their home schedule Nov. 28 with matches against Keenan, Swansea and Lower Richland. Even though the Bengals fell in all three matches, head coach Paul Watson believes his team has plenty of potential.

“We’re going to get better every single week,” Watson stated. “Our rookies won’t look like rookies come January.”

Over half of Blythewood’s wrestlers are in their first year on the mat. The Bengals have already shaken off those losses with a 66-12 win over Ben Lippen on Tuesday night. Blythewood won 12 of the 14 bouts and was looking forward to another home contest on Wednesday against Lancaster.
