Panthers beat Warriors 78-6

In a match that started with a homage to late CHS and Centralia Panther Youth Wrestling Coach Bryan Schmidt, the CHS varsity wrestling squad nearly shut out the visiting Winfield Warriors, winning the night 78-6.

Centralia got an early jump when Winfield gave up the 106-, 113-, 120-, and 126-pound weight classes, giving Centralia a large instant lead.

Braden Russell – 170, was ahead on points, but fell to a last-second reversal.
