Alexandria’s Luke Blanton (14-0 on the season) was also voted as the recipient of the 2012 Madison County Wrestling Tournament’s “Fred Lamb Outstanding Wrestler Award”. Blanton remained toward the top of the polls in the State Rankings as he still remains ranked No. 2 in the 138 LB weight class.

“It was pretty good,” Blanton said when commenting on his performance Saturday. “Especially since I missed basically three practices because I was sick. I missed Wednesday on. It felt good to me (the performance) because coming off the sickness, I mean I’m still pretty sick, but it felt pretty good just because of that.”

Alexandria (8-3) will now prepare to wrestle at Jay County on Dec. 22nd in the ECIC Team Tournament.
