Janesville Craig’s wrestling team’s start of the South Milwaukee Invitational wasn’t good, but the Cougars breezed after that.
The Cougars lost to Kenosha Bradford 46-27 to open the invitational, but they bounced back to win their final four duals to take second place.
Bradford won the title by going 5-0.
Coach Mark Mullen said the Cougars bounced back well after an emotional victory over Janesville Parker on Friday night.
“The kids wrestled tough,” Mullen said.
Heavyweight Keeanu Benton led the charge by sweeping all five of his matches Saturday. Nate Ellis (132), Marshall Getchell (160) and Mitch Schumann (182) each went 4-1.
