Two NG-LHF Wrestlers Make State
Last Friday & Saturday marked the final tournament for some wrestlers, as the C-2 Districts were held at Norfolk Catholic. Sixteen teams came together and wrestled 4 rounds of competition on Friday afternoon. Throughout the day the Jay-Dogs posted a 7-4 record, and managed to keep all 6 of their wrestlers in the competition. All 7 wins on Friday came by way of pinfall to add some much needed extra points to their team score. On day 2 of the competition the team had Derek Wallin and Dylan Zoucha in the semi’s, while the rest wrestled out of the bottom of their brackets.
Even after the Semi’s & 3rd Round Consolations, the guys still fared well by keeping 4 in until the final heartbreak round. Parker Wallin and Dakota Ruhnke wrestled hard, but couldn’t quite make it past their final opponent, which was all that separated them from qualifying for the state tournament. Derek Wallin finished with top honors on the day at 182, while teammate Dylan Zoucha brought home 3rd at 113.
The State Tournament will get under way this Thursday morning at 9:30AM. Those who may not be able to make it down right away, but wish to follow along can do so by getting online to Track Wrestling’s website which will post live scores throughout matches.
