Wednesday night, the Jackets hosted region rivals Pope and Kell. Our first match against Pope was a tough one. The Jackets started off strong with wins from Tyrik Woods (160), Colin Ramey (182) and Darius Burton (195). Going into the turn, we were only down 12-16, but again we had to forfeit 106, 113, 120, and 138, giving up 24 points. It will be tough for the Jackets to stay competitive without depth across all weight classes and the ability for guys to step up and fill in when V starters are out. Our second match was against Kell, who had an equally battered line-up. It was a much closer match that came down to the wire. Senior Ricky Dover (152) sealed the victory with a decisive victory to keep us ahead with a final score of 30-21.
