|Written by Brenda Johnson Brandt|
Tournament action for the Dragon wrestling team opened Saturday, Dec. 7 at St. Francis, Kan., where the green and gold brought home three fourths and a second place in a round robin bracket.
Eric Rojo, Sid Struckmeyer and Nathan Miles came through the back door to win some hardware with their fourth-place finishes.
Dennis Amaya competed in a three-man round robin bracket and placed second. Fernando Lopez and Marques Harvey also earned mat wins in their brackets at St. Francis.
Coach Cutter Garrison said he feels the boys wrestled well for this early in the season. “We have a long, long way to go before regionals, but if we keep chipping at our mistakes and learning with every victory and defeat, we will be there when it counts,” he added.
Garrison commended the fourth-place finishers for their effort in taking care of business after losing early matches in the day.
“The boys should be proud of a fourth-place medal at a tournament like St. Francis where we have a mixture of classifications and talent competing,” said the coach.
