SOUTH WHITLEY ‚ÄĒ A short-handed Whitko Wild-cat Wrestling squad rallied from a 15-0 deficit to down visiting Three Rivers Conference foe Rochester 36-33 on a cold blustery Thursday night.
The Wildcats forfeited in five weight classes as injuries depleted the Whitko lineup. Rochester forfeited three classes of their own.
Fortunately for the Wildcats, two classes were double forfeits, so the effect of the limited lineup was lessened.
