Panthers see wins
Saratoga wrestlers win seven matches at Lingle
January 27, 2021
The Saratoga High School wrestling team traveled to Lingle on January 23 to compete against Glenrock, Lingle Ft. Laramie/Southeast, and Gering, Nebraska.
Head Coach Jared Mason said the first dual went well.
"The Panthers began their day against Glenrock winning the dual by a 42-36 team score," Mason said.
He said the next dual tested the Panthers.
"They wrestled Lingle Ft. Laramie/Southeast next, losing the dual 18-60 in a rough outing for the Panthers," said Mason.
The last dual went back to favor Saratoga.
"Against Gering, in the final round, the Panthers won the dual 36-32," Mason said. "Several of the duals had many forfeits as the teams didn't match up that well. In overall matches wrestled, the Panthers won seven and lost 13."
Mason hopes the team will do well in the coming weeks.
"The Panthers look to dig deep and improve with hopes of still qualifying several wrestlers for the state tournament in February," said Mason.
The head coach had some good words for his grapplers.
"Congratulations to Slayd Daley on his impressive 3-0 individual performance, that earned him Panther Wrestler of the Week honors," Mason said. "Cale Mowry also picked up a big win against Anthony Solas of HEM, to whom he had lost to previously."
Other Panther wrestlers competing and contributing to the team wins were: Josiah Stockewll, Tuker Carricato, Justin Shotwell, Brayden Gray, Douglass Campbell, Kellen Reeder, Kaden Hedley, Quade Jordan, Logan Robinson, and Ben Wagy.
Saratoga will be hosting Wind River and Greybull for a couple wrestling duals at home this Friday, January 29th.
