With seven wrestlers, FHS places three at Bradley

CLEVELAND — With only half a team showing up due to sickness, injury and one weight limit problem, the Farragut High School wrestling team nevertheless had three grapplers place during the annual Bradley Invitational Friday and Saturday, Dec. 16-17.

Only seven starting Admiral wrestlers competed in what FHS head coach Joe Knox said is the second toughest regular season tournament they’ll compete in — 23 teams — behind only the Father Ryan Invitational.

Junior Shane Reveiz, a state qualifier last season in the 189-pound class, finished second. “He did well,” Knox said.

Senior heavyweight Brandon Lazarus finished fifth. “He wrestled excellent,” Knox said about the FHS football offensive lineman standout.

Though A.J. Farinella took sixth at 125, the sophomore had a bad break — literally — that kept him from finishing as high as third.

During Farinella’s consolation semifinal, “He did really well ... he wrestled a great tournament, but we had to forfeit to sixth after he broke his nose, we couldn’t stop the bleeding,” Knox said. “The best he could have done is third, but we forfeited on down to sixth.”

Matt Scaperoth (130) managed to grab two wins.

Among those missing was Nick Reveiz, defending TSSAA Division I 215 state champion.

“He got his tonsils taken out,” Knox said about the senior, adding that Nick Reveiz has not competed this season, but was cleared to start practicing Monday.
