While HHS lost its four duals in terms of team points at the Wizard Wrestling Duals in Windsor Saturday, Dec. 3, coach Jack Garrison was well-pleased with the Dragon performance.

“I’ve never been so happy to be 0-4 in my life,” he said after the season opener.

In terms of actual matches wrestled, Holyoke would have won one of the four duals, tied one and would have had a mere two-point loss in the third one.

The Dragons gave up team points in four weight divisions, which made the difference in the dual win-loss records.

Team scores found the Dragons losing to Legacy 19-51, to Poudre 28-54, to Loveland 36-48 and to Cheyenne Central in Wyoming 36-39.

Holyoke took all 20 team members, even if they were hurt and couldn’t wrestle. Garrison said it was good team-building time and was real beneficial.

Mark Edmonds (132 lbs.) and Broc Pelle (170) both went 4-0 and wrestled phenomenally well, said coach Garrison. “They picked right up where the season ended last year,” he added.

Parker Redfern (160 lbs.) was 3-1, losing only to a sixth-ranked 5A wrestler.

Freshman Dylan Kotch (220 lbs.) was a great surprise for the Dragons, said Garrison, as he went 3-1 for the day.

Astolfo Rojo (195), Jesus Hermosillo (182) and Nick Ortner (138) were all 2-2 for the day and wrestled well, said Garrison.

Other wrestlers performed very well, said the coach. Six Dragons competed in the 145-lb. and 152-lb. divisions in the four duals to give several the opportunity to wrestle.
