Alma Wrestles Good at Red Cloud

The Alma Wrestlers traveled East to Red Cloud this past Saturday. This meet allows the team to wrestle Kansas schools that they usually do not wrestle any other time during the season. Jesus Felix had a very tough bracket with a few ranked wrestlers from NE and two good wrestlers from Kansas. He did wrestle very well and was able to go 1-2 but did not place. Josh Mapes once again looked better and improved in some areas over the last week but was unable to get a win. Mitchel Gahrig went 1-2, the one win was with a pin. Kyle Johnson went 2-2 and earned 4th place losing a close match 2-3 to Camden Harris of Beloit KS. Hector Lugo had one of his best days this year and went 4-1 with 3 pins and earned himself a third place medal! Tyson McCurdy was 3-1 on the day and Joseph Felix went 2-2 on the day and they were both wrestling in the 152 lb weight class. After they both won their first match with pins they both lost their second match to the wrestlers who would go on to place 1st and 2nd. As luck would have it they ended up in the 3rd/4th place match. Tyson would win with a score of 2-0 and taking 3rd place, Joseph would settle for 4th. This is the second time this year they have placed 3rd and 4th. As a team we placed 8th (none of Josephs wins counted toward our team score, he was a non-scoring wrestler)The team will travel to Loup City on Friday!
