The Cruisers also defeated Hamilton Township 60-18 the same night at the tri-meet. As of late December, the defending OCC Capital Division champion Cruisers were 8-0 in dual meets, came in first in tournaments at Granville and Bexley, and second in a tournament at Logan.

Prior to the start of the Cruisers’ wrestling matches with Madison Plains and Hamilton Township on Dec. 20, the Cruiser community honored the late Fred Nebbergall. Nebbergall, a 1973 graduate of Groveport Madison and lifelong supporter of Cruiser wrestling and Central Ohio wrestling, who passed away in February 2018. Groveport Madison Athletic Director Steve Petros noted that Nebbergall was a member of two Cruiser Mid-8 League championship wrestling teams, a two time sectional champion, a two time District placer, a Cruiser wrestling coach, and 40 year member of the Central Ohio District Wrestling Officials Association and a 40 year table official at the OHSAA state wrestling tournament. “Cruiser wrestling was a life long passion for Fred,” said Petros.
