Chafino undefeated in Eaton duals
Earning four wins by pins at the Eaton dual wrestling tournament Saturday, Feb. 8, 170-lb. Dragon senior wrestler Luis Chafino is ready for the weekend regionals.
Facing Akron, Greeley West, Valley and Greeley Central in the 13-team dual tournament, Chafino was the only Holyoke wrestler who actually matched up with an opponent in each of the four duals.
Carlos Legarreta also went 4-0 at 126 lbs. He wrestled well for a win against Greeley West, but the rest of his matches were won by forfeit when the opposing team did not have a wrestler in his weight division.
HHS won an 18-15 dual over Akron, while losing to Greeley West, Valley and Greeley Central, mostly due to open weight classes.
Coach Dusty McConnell said the four Dragons who competed at Eaton wrestled well. The team looks forward to the Feb. 14-15 regionals at Northeastern Junior College in Sterling.
Friday action will begin at 4 p.m., with Saturday’s matches starting at 9:30 a.m.
