S-C’s Philbrook to Wrestle for Umpqua Community College
Smith-Cotton High School senior Kathryn Philbrook has signed a letter of participation to wrestle at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, Ore.
Philbrook, the daughter of Jennifer Panicco, was a two-year letter winner in wrestling and a member of Smith-Cotton’s inaugural All-Girls team. In her two years, she compiled a record of 20 wins and 24 losses. Of her 20 wins, 15 came by way of fall. She scored 44 takedowns, 22 escapes, 14 reversals, and 15 nearfalls.
S-C Wrestling Head Coach Eric McNeal said, “Kathryn has a lot of ability and had to work to overcome a good deal of adversity. She really turned a corner toward the end of the season and for an individual only in her second year, she did very well. I would have liked to see what she could have done with four years of practice and competition under her belt. We are proud that she is moving on to the next level and has found a place where she is comfortable pursuing her future goals."
