Congratulations to Kennedy High School champion wrestler
Raymond Begay (at left in photo), who recently captured the Chicago Public Schools heavyweight crown in a tournament on the West Side, defeating Raymundo Rodriguez of Bowen in the final match, in double overtime.
Sharing a proud moment with the champ is Kennedy varsity wrestling coach DeAndre Mosley (at right in photo).
Though just a sophomore, Raymond went 18-1 in matches against older boys this season.
The champ now moves on to state competition, where he is
expected to compete on February 8 in IHSA Regionals
action at Fenwick High School.
A Garfield Ridge resident, Raymond is a 2018 graduate of Byrne School.
Way to go, Raymond!

And thanks, Coach Mosely, for sharing this news with us, as well as all you do--day in and day out--to make Kennedy High School a better place!
