Once the dust settled on the 3A East wrestling tournament early Saturday evening, Kettle Run head wrestling Coach Michael Foy had time to reflect on his team’s performance.

“Once I thought about it, I realized I’d have both good and bittersweet memories,” Coach Foy said.

In addition to the Cougars (108 points) finishing sixth overall out of 25 teams, Coach Foy could look back and see most of Kettle Run wrestlers won at least a couple matches and earned team points.

New Kent took the regional title with 215 points. Second went to Brentsville (199), with Poquoson, third with 191 points.

Further back in fourth place, Warren County (143) and fifth, Skyline (127.5).

After Kettle Run took sixth, Culpeper (107) took seventh, Spotsylvania (99.5), eighth, John Champe (94.5), ninth and rounding out the top 10, Manassas Park with 82.5 points.

Another bright spot were the three athletes moving onward to states are all sophomores and two are just in their second year of organized wrestling.

The first is 106-pounder Caden Lody, who rode his Conference 27 title to a second-place finish.

Lody wound up as the only Cougar conference title-holder to place high enough to earn a bid to this week’s 3A state tournament in Salem.

He also would remember the bouts of 126-pounder Justyn Bush.

Bush entered regions as a third-place finisher at conference level. In New Kent.

He advanced in the championship bracket before losing and falling into the consolation round.

Bush lost his consolation final match, giving him fourth in the tournament.

“It’s quite an achievement to advance to the state tournament in your second year of wrestling,” Coach Foy said of Lody and Bush.

The final wrestler advancing, Jacob Schwind, lost in the championship bracket semifinals at 220, then won his consolation bracket final bout to take third.

Two Kettle Run wrestlers who were conference champions a week ago – Ryan Schwind (195) and Colson Jaynes (160) – scored points for the Cougars but finished fifth and sixth respectively in their weight classes.

Per Virginia High School League rules, only the top four wrestlers in each weight class advance to states.

“That’s the bittersweet part,” Coach Foy said. “That only one of my seniors (Jacob Schwind) qualified. Ross McInnis and Colson both missed it by one match.”

Ryan Schwind, another sophomore, will make the trip with the team, serving as an alternate in his weight class.

“I am super proud of our team’s performance,” Coach Foy said. “Almost everyone won some matches to help our team score.”
