Jacobs wrestler Ryan takes Huntley Regional title
HUNTLEY – Jacobs junior Austin Ryan's strategy was pretty simple – grab the early lead on Harlem's Adam Zacharuk and hold on from there.
“I knew I had to get the first takedown, then keep a good head and wrestle my match the rest of the way,” Ryan said.
Ryan accomplished that, holding a narrow lead then adding a takedown in the third period to win the 106-pound match at the Class 3A Huntley Wrestling Regional Tournament. Ryan was the lone area competitor to win his weight class Saturday. Those wrestlers in the top three advance to the Barrington Sectional.
