This past weekend Kenny Boyd competed in the FHSAA wrestling state tournament. Looking to become Stranahan's first state champion since 1982, Kenny wrestled hard. He had a tough draw in the first round wrestling the #4 ranked kid in the state but a takedown with 6 seconds left in the match secured the win for Kenny. He went on to dominate his next opponent 15-5 to make it to the semi-finals and automatically become a state placer for the 2nd year in a row.
In the semi-finals Kenny wrestled a smart match defeating his opponent 9-5 and becoming Stranahan's first state finalist since 1982. He would go on to fall short of his goal losing in the finals in a hard fought match 10-5. Placing in the top 2 has automatically qualified Kenny for Senior nationals at the conclusion of his senior year where scouts from all over the nation will be there looking for quality wrestlers to add to their college squad. If you see Kenny please let him know how well he did in representing Stranahan High and that we are proud of him as he does not take losing lightly and this is an outstanding achievement.
