"We did pretty well," said Coach Andy Auten. "We had too many guys out but the guys that wrestled did a good job."
Two of the standouts included Henige and Calvano. Henige moved up to the 160-pound weight class to beat Cody Devoe, from Rochester, 5-0. Devoe is currently ranked fourth and Henige holds the sixth spot.
Calvano moved up from the B Team to help the varsity team and wrestled the 171-pound, also moving up from his 152-pound weight class.
He went up against Rochester's Matt Waskiewisz, ranked seventh in the state. He lost 5-3 after competing for three rounds.
"He had a great match and wrestled very well," said Auten.
Auten explained some of the starting lineup were missing because of illnesses or injuries.
The boys head to Carlson on Wednesday for a Quad meet and Detroit Catholic Central on Saturday for their Super Duals.
