A BANNER YEAR
Prior to the start of Saturday’s meet time was taken to honor the 2012-13 wrestling team which went 27-3 and set a new NHS record for most wins in a season. In the process the team captured its second D-3 Central Sectional championship and finished as runners-up in the D-3 State championships. Captains Jack Cuneo (106) and Stephen Hudson (132 with 104 pins) both went over 100+ career wins to become the 5th & 6th members of the elite NHS "Century Club". In addition, Stephen along with JT Taylor, became the 10th & 11th individual sectional champions in NHS history. Mike Travers set team records for most wins (45) and most pins (35) in a season. Two new team banners were raised and additions were made to two individual banners.
