Ben Davis also sent Norman Oglesby down to the state finals, but like Levi, he was battling his own injury issues heading into the finals.
“Ben Davis had a rough week,” Aaron said. “Norman was sick all last weekend with a fever and came in Monday coughing up blood. We took him to the doctor and he had pretty bad bronchitis. He did not practice all week and his match was the first time he stepped on the mat this week. It was the weirdest state week I’ve ever had.”
Oglesby lost in his opener, 3-1, but as a sophomore has two more years to improve his skill set.
“Definitely not Norman and he is obviously disappointed because we felt like we were a top four kid,” Aaron said. “On a healthy day, we would have been top eight or close to that. The great thing is, Norman is only going to get better. He’s growing into the sport and is new to it. He’ll be back and we’re excited about that.”
