Druley: Martens recharges battery, heads back to state
PALOS HEIGHTS – Geneva senior 120-pound wrestler Brad Martens is a return qualifier to the IHSA Class 3A state tournament, and he didn’t even stay at a Holiday Inn Express on Friday night.
Martens did sleep at the nearby Crestwood Inn between sessions at the Shepard Sectional, allowing himself extra time to rest. Rallying for three victories in four wrestleback matches Saturday undoubtedly would have been tougher had the Vikings’ contingent left from the Geneva parking lot early in the morning.
Instead, the group traveled to Shepard for weigh-ins, then returned to the Crestwood Inn in Palos Heights for a quick continental breakfast before heading back.
