IMO the best match of the day was the 145 semi-final match between 2 Freshman. TC's Conley and Ontario's Turnbaugh. Two of the Top Five 145s in the State. Turnbaugh winning 7-5 in OT. Too bad it was bracketed the way it was and they couldn't meet in the Finals. Turnbaugh won 16-1 in the finals
The Junior Turnbaugh, who was burned over the top half of his body when he was a Freshman in a wood burner accident, lost in the 152 3rd/4th place match by default to Norwalk's Phillips who he beat for the Sectional Title.
There is another Turnbaugh brother coming who is even better than his Freshman brother. In 1999 Father Turnbaugh was voted the best wrestler in all weight classes in all Divisions at the State Tournament when he was a Senior.
The family went through difficult times this fall when a beautiful younger sister died in a 4-wheeler accident.
