The Eagle Wrestlers traveled to the Royall Invite this past weekend and found some good competition. The JV also got to get some mat time so that’s what made this tournament special. Our three JV wrestlers were Hudson Bethke, Tristan Huerth, and Ethan Anderson. All three boys got value from the day. Hudson finished the day with a 3rd place. Tristan and Ethan came out very strong with 1st place finishes. Great day for all three wrestlers.

The Varsity wrestlers had a good learning day. Even though the Eagles wrestled hard and finished 12th as a team, they ended the day with 3 place winners.

At 138 Colin O’Neil finished in 6th place against Gunnar Hamre from Poynette in a wrestle back. He lost by decision in a very close match 4-1. At 150 Tristin Grant came out with a great day by pinning the number one seed Kaleb Baumgart {Fall 2:27} to get to the finals. He wrestled a very strong match to Richland Center’s Warrick Wolf and lost a decision 13-7 to finish for 2nd place. Our last place finisher for the day was our 285 Zack Mlsna who wrestled strong and finished 6th to Angel Tejeda from Madison East {Fall in :20}. The Cashton boys had a pretty good first tournament. Can’t wait to get to work and show what more is to come at the Tomah Scramble next week! Stayed tuned on the Teams’ journey to meet their goals!
