Caleb Primos

 The Milford High School wrestling team competed upstate in the Delcastle Invitational on Friday and Saturday, Jan. 7 and 8, and fared well, finishing fifth out of 15 teams.

 The Bucs finish behind only two other Henlopen Conference teams, Sussex Central and Cape Henlopen, who finished 1st and 3rd, respectively. The only other Henlopen Conference team competing, Polytech, finished ninth overall.

 Individually for the Bucs, Alvontae Drummond placed second at 130 pounds after losing to Cape Henlopen’s Chris Young in the championship bout, 6-1. Darreus McCrea, the only other Milford wrestler competing in the championship bouts, was pinned by Hodgson’s heavyweight Disco Schafferman, two minutes and eight seconds into his match.

 In the consolation matches, Milford won at 152 pounds and 160 pounds. Isaiah Fidderman at 152 beat Hodgson’s Cody Horrocks, 7-2, and Quinn Abbott at 160 pounds pinned Tadeo Gonzalez from Cape Henlopen in 4:40.      Chris Harris (145 pounds) also lost in consolation to A.I. duPont’s Brendon Sebera because of a disqualification due to an illegal move.

 Abbott’s win earned him the No. 3 ranking on the DE Preps website amongst the state’s 160-pound wrestlers. Abbott lost to both the first and second ranked wrestlers before defeating Gonzalez.

 The Bucs next face Laurel High School in Milford on Wednesday, Jan. 12. The Delcastle Invitational was the team’s final tournament of the season before the post-season tourneys.
