Malvern Prep crushes Germantown Academy 69-9 Match Video

Germantown Academy faced off with Malvern Prep Friday night in Alumni Hall. Lots of wrestling fans were looking forward to some good wrestling. It turned out to be anticlimactic. Germantown kept a couple of their best wrestlers on the bench and moved some varsity guys to JV. This resulted in 8 forfeits out of 14 matches. What a mess.  I don’t know if there were extenuating circumstance but  the theme seemed clear.  Getting fans to sit through a dual with more forfeits than matches is a not a good way to sustain or grow the sport .This is bad for wrestling at any level. Imagine this happening in swimming or gymnastics. You can see the match video below the box score.
