In week seven of the regular season, the Oxford High School wrestling team made a comeback last week with several of their injured or sick wrestlers back on the mat. Last Wednesday, the Wolverines defeated South-West Conference rival Immaculate/Joel Barlow at an away match.
On Saturday, the Oxford wrestlers headed to Portland to compete in the Highlander Duals. Oxford went 3-1 on the day, with Junior Steve Persson (152 lbs) winning the Outstanding Wrestler award at this competitive event. With five schools competing, each with 14 weight classes, this was a very impressive achievement and a first for an Oxford wrestler.
The balance of the OHS squad powered their way through the duals with impressive victories against great competition.
Scores not posted:

Last week's performance brings the Wolverine's season to 11 - 11 (Overall), 3 - 5 (SWC). As they head into week 8 of the 9 week regular season, the Wolverines have five more meets before they head to the SWC Championships on Feb. 9.
