Wrestlers Take First at Shelton Invitational

The team then traveled to Shelton on Saturday morning. What they were able to do is something Alma has not done in a very long time…They Won the Tournament with 97 points, taking it by 1 point (Ainsworth and Arapahoe tied for second with 96 points each) Tyson Linner and Diego both wrestled hard and had some good matches, improving on things from the night before but were unable to get wins. Marc was able to get one win on the day helping the team with 3 team points. CJ got two nice wins both with pins the fastest being at :22. Tyson McCurdy was able to earn 2nd place and getting 1 pin (earning 9 team point) At this time he leads the team with 19 escapes. Hector went 4-1 (3 pins) taking 2nd place earning 18 team points, his current record is 22-7 with 19 pins. Kyle went 4-0 with three pins the fastest being  :05 against JV wrestler Creed Johnson (Wilcox-Hildreth) and took 1st place. Joseph had 3 pins, 20 team points and took 1st place. He currently leads the team with 41 takedowns and has 16 pins. Daylan had 3 pins, 20 team points and took 1st place. Daylan’s current record is 26-5 with 19 pins and lead he the team with 14 reversals.

For perspective last year we earned 6 medals at the Cambridge meet and only placed 5th. The last time an Alma team won a tournament we currently wrestle in was in the 1995-1996 season when they won the Elm Creek tournament.  The team will be wrestling at the RPAC tournament on Friday at Southern Vally, wrestling begins at 2:30.
