The Cadets beat Battlefield High School, Lloyd C. Bird High School, Potomac Senior High School and Lee Davis High School. The Cadets, however, lost to Bishop Spalding because of tie-breaker criteria.
"We did [well]," said sophomore wrestler Brenden Barnes. "Because we tied (in points) Archbishop Spalding, and they were top ten at preps."
Barnes went undefeated at the meet. Sophomore Ryan Tremain also went undefeated at the meet. Senior Josh Yost also had a good performance at the meet.
This meet was a dual meet, where the schools competed head to head and in round-robin fashion.
