Rockets Wrestle Past Visiting Wilmington [VIDEO]

In their final home match, the Rockets grappled to a 40-30 win over the visiting Wildcats.

The Reading wrestling team wrapped up a stellar regular season in style.

Head coach Craig Murphy's charges won six of their first seven matches against Wilmington to hope out to a big lead and held off a late Wilmington charge to finish with a 19-3 record entering the postseason.

"We wrestled well, won the matches we needed to," said Murphy. "The guys have worked hard to get to this point and they put it together tonight. It was a nice win to cap off the dual meet season and head to the tournaments."
