WRA duo shines at National Preps

Jayden Demmy and Sammy Toggas traveled to Lehigh University for National Preps.

Two Western Reserve Academy wrestlers competed at the National Preps, which concluded Feb. 25 at Lehigh University in Bethlehem, PA.

Jayden Demmy finished 2-2 at 182 pounds and Sammy Toggas lost both of his matches at 132 pounds.

"Jayden had a great performance," Pioneers head coach John Gordon said. "He lost 3-2 to a returning All-American. He was winning 2-1 with nine seconds left, but he got taken down. It was a heartbreaker. If he would have won, he would have been an All-American.

"Sammy received great experience for the days ahead. Their participation was good visibility for the program and the school. Four nationally ranked teams were among the teams in the field."
