WHAT HAPPENED/WHAT IT MEANS:

The boys wrestling team took on perennial conference foe West Ottawa in an away meet Wednesday night. The squad won 68-6 and had total control of the meet the entire night. Only suffering one loss of a match, the Bucs kept their composure, making sure they could secure the win. This conference win gives good momentum heading into their next match against Rockford.

KEY MOMENT:

Anytime there’s a conference rival as the opponent and the meet is on the road, it’s always important. Claiming a Buccaneer win in an unfriendly environment is important for the confidence of the wrestlers.

KEY PLAYERS:

  • 1st star: Senior Cody Miller. The senior wrestler continues his dominant ways on the mat, again winning all of his matches.
  • 2nd star: Junior Riley Rhone. One of the more competitive wrestlers of the group, Rhone took down all of his opponents on his list.
  • 3rd star: Junior Chance Heineman. An up-and-coming junior wrestler, Heineman had a successful meet as well, claiming victories in all of his matches.

THEY SAID IT: “We pinned the people we needed to pin and we won the matches we were supposed to win,” junior Michel Russo said, who will be returning to the mat after a torn ACL injury that kept him out of the season thus far. “We wrestled really, really hard and the score showed it.”

UP NEXT: The Buccaneer wrestlers take on Rockford in a home meet on Wednesday Jan. 30 for another important conference match.
