Brando Leggott '18 Earns SAS Athlete of the Week

With a state tournament berth on the line this past weekend at the Independent Conference Championships, Saints wrestling captain Brando Leggott '18 battled his way to a fourth-place finish and secured his second straight trip to the DIAA Individual Championships. Leggott, seeded fourth amongst his competitors, went 2-2 over the course of the weekend and lost a close third-place match, dropping the contest by a final score of 5-2.

Leggott, whose record stands at 23-4 during the 2017-18 campaign, has performed well in every tournament that he has entered this season. He was crowned tournament champion at the Bulldog Invitational, the Westtown Wrestling Tournament and the Tower Hill Tournament while taking third-place at the Delcastle Invitational. Additionally, at the Delaware Independent Schools Conference (DISC) Tournament, Leggott placed second when he lost the championship match to Andrew Brooks of Sanford School, the 2016 state champion at 138 pounds and the 2018 Independent Conference Champion.

Head wrestling coach Phil Davis coached Leggott all year long, "In wrestling you have many opponents, but the toughest opponent you will face is yourself. Mindset means everything." Leggott plans to use this advice this week as he will participate in the DIAA Individual Championships at Cape Henlopen High School on Friday, February 23, at 4:00 p.m. To check in on Brando, please visit https://www.standrews-de.org/athletics/scores for updates.
