The injury plagued Friars endured a 68-9 loss to Providence and a 78-3 loss to Joliet West last week.

Fenwick has been without defending state champ Matt Garelli (120-pound weight class) and high caliber grapplers in Mike Frietag (126) and Tony Aguliar (126, 132) due to injuries. All three wrestlers have undergone surgery for their injuries over the last few weeks. Head coach Jerry Ruffino hopes to have them back wrestling by early next week.

“They should be released to wrestle by next week, but that’s not to say they’ll be ready to compete by then,” he said. “I do hope we’re at full strength by the league meet and the regional.”

Fenwick’s Mike Kozrya (145) and Graham Joss (170) earned victories against Providence.
