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.
