Congratulations to Bubatune Ogunubi on being selected as the SCIAA student athlete of the month. Bubatune is not only a strong athlete, but a strong all around student and we are proud to have him as part of the Germantown High School family. He certainly represents the best qualities in many areas.
Our wrestlers had a great performance this past weekend. Three of our boys placed in the top four in the Region 8 wrestling championships and will be representing our school at the individual wrestling state championships this past Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Kalen Reed (106 lbs.) took 3rd, Bubatubde Ogunubi (182 lbs.) took 4th, and Gabe Fletcher (Hwt) took 4th as well.
This past weekend, at the Briarcrest Dawg Fights, three of our wrestlers brought home some hardware....Kalen Reed took 3rd, Trevor Watson took 4th and Gabe Fletcher took 5th. This is a very good showing, especially considering the caliber of competition at the tournament.
Over the Christmas break our wrestlers represented our GHS in two tournaments., Bartlett Individuals and Millington Trojan Wars. We brought back plenty of hardware (1 1st place medal, 3 2nd place medals, 1 3rd place medal and 1 4th place medal).
The highlight of the Trojan Wars was one team member pinning his opponent in 13 seconds (yes 13! He shook his hand, took him down and pinned him! 😊). If you have any of these young men in your class, please let them know you're proud of them. We may not have a full team, but the 9 we have are tough and scrappy!
This past weekend Untwan Braswell and Demear Darling did an awesome job representing our Germantown hs at the Liberty tournament in St. Louis MO. Untwan took 1st place (beat a MO state qualifier in the finals match) and Demear took 3rd. Let them know you're proud of them if you see them in the hallway. #RedDevilWrestling
