Hunter Miner went toe-to-toe with Dundy County-Stratton’s Matthew Wissink, but lost the match by decision.
Regular season wraps up, district wrestling to be Friday, Saturday
Wauneta-Palisade wrestling coaches are optimistic that the team’s struggles Saturday at the Southwest Invite mean good things for Friday and Saturday’s district meet.
It was very difficult meet, WP Coach Danny Schluckebier said. WP didn’t win a regulation match, though Faith Lemon won an exhibition match.
Two matches went full time.
Colby Hoskovec jumped up to 113 pounds and lost 2-6 in his second match of the day. Jose Pas had a takedown and two reversals to out score Hoskovec’s one reversal.
At 120 pounds, Hunter Miner lost his second match 2-6. Miner trailed by 0-2 going into the third, but could only get two escapes in the third period.
The meet is the final one for senior Evan Nordhausen. A shoulder injury has limited Nordhausen’s season and the coaches have decided to shut him down.
Wyatt Muths was pinned in both his 132-pound matches. Schluckebier said he hopes Muths will take on his district opponents with the same attitude he shows in practice.
After missing three meets with an injury, Lemon lost both matches in the 170-pound bracket. Lemon was able to get a pin in an exhibition match set up by Weise and the Medicine Valley coaches.
