Countryman, Baldridge, Oughton finish fourth at State
CHAMPAIGN — Both Morris wrestlers Nik Countryman and Kenny Baldridge took a step up at the IHSA Class 2A Tournament on Saturday. One year removed from each gaining All-State status while finishing sixth at the same event, the Redksins duo each wound up fourth this time around.
"I'm very proud of both of them. They both worked very, very hard. Anytime you get down on this floor, anything can happen," Morris coach Jon Lanning said. "Both of them wrestled to the best of their abilities in every one of their matches. They did a great job. We won some close ones and we lost some close ones, but that's the way it goes down here.
"Obviously their goal this year was to get into the state finals. They didn't quite make it there but it was very, very close."
