Sandwich winners included Jacob Ross (106), Colten Stone (113), Jakob Gruca (126), Cooper Corder (138), Miles Corder (144), Ian Hawkins (150) and Sy Smith (165).

“We’re young. Eleven or 12 of us are freshmen or sophomores so I knew what was going to be a challenge for us,” Sandwich coach Derek Jones said. “I know in a couple years they’re to be pretty dang tough. I’m excited for the future, obviously disappointed today but not in them, but in the result.”
