EDGERTON - Academic diligence was all that stood between the Brodhead-Juda Cardinals and a victory at Saturday's Edgerton Duals Invitational.The Cardinals were missing two of their key senior wrestlers, Cody Spooner and Josh Hicks, who were taking their ACT tests. Despite being short-handed, the Cards finished 3-2 - their two losses were by incredibly slim margins."We were really happy with the effort today, and I really felt we finished strong," said Cardinals head coach Tim Colden. "Having two starters out, I really believe we could have been at least 4-1 if not 5-0 if we had our full roster."Four Cardinals went 5-0 and won individual titles.
