After securing its second consecutive undefeated West Suburban (Silver) Conference season, the OPRF wrestling team has thus far left no stone unturned, including notching victories over top-ranked Montini and third-ranked Marmion this week.

The Huskies avenged last season's loss to Montini by sending the Broncos packing with a 39-29 loss.

Davonte Mahomes (160-pound weight class) and Joey Ariola (195) won their respective weight divisions by pins, while Roberto Campos battled to a decision win over Jimmy Pawelski at 106.

Other Huskies who garnered division titles included Isaiah White (126), Larry Early (132), Jake O'Mara (138), Johnny Gahagan (145), and Kamal Bey (152).

OPRF didn't have much time to rest with a trip to Marmion the very next day. The Huskies closed out the regular season schedule with a 38-19 pasting of the Cadets.

The highlight of this match was Isaiah White filling in for Early (illness) at 132 pounds. White defeated top-ranked George Fisher with a 7-4 decision.     

The Huskies now gear up for the Class 3A York Individual Regional to be held on Saturday, Feb. 2.

Oprf wrestling is the hottest ticket in town, add to that the awesome photographer, Jonna, who captures the essence of each wrestler, week after week, meet after week and you get a fantastic one two punch that cannot be beat! Sports Illustrated needs her expertise. We are fortunate to be witness to such talent. Go Jonna, go oprf varsity, continue bringing it! They are a winning combination that no one can dispute . . . Unless they're itching for a masterful wrestle off!
