Liberty has stepped into the national high school wrestling limelight the past two years. Now the Blue Jays can say they’ve jumped all the way in: head first.
Continuing to make program history, the Blue Jays traveled to Chicago for the nationally renowned Beat the Streets Brawl – regarded as one of the toughest dual meet tournaments in the country.
Seven of the eight teams that competed in the event Saturday, Jan. 18, hold a spot in InterMat.com’s Fab 50 national poll, including No. 25 Liberty.
“What a huge opportunity for our guys and our team,” Liberty head coach Dustin Brewer said by phone Saturday night after the tournament. “We’ve very thankful we had the chance to come and compete out here. An experience like this is only going to make us tougher as individual wrestlers and as a team.”
