Miners

HANNA – The Hanna-Elk Mountain-Medicine Bow wrestling team got in a lot of wrestling this past weekend. The wrestlers traveled to North Park, Colo. then back to the Cowboy State for the Shane Shatto Memorial Tournament in Douglas.

Colorado was rough for the Miners in terms of match wins, as the Miners went 1-9 as a team. Head coach Robert Riddle was pleased that his wrestlers never gave up though, with all the wrestlers showing improvement. The Miners have been battling injuries as well as sickness. The one match win came from senior David Cruz, who split his matches for the day.

“David still needs to work on conditioning to get him through matches that are back to back,” Riddle said.

The rest of the team was able to take their matches into multiple periods. Freshman Thomas Wagner fought hard against his opponents, but would fall in the third periods. Freshman Howard Bame wrestled out of his weight class and was able to get points. Charlee Solaas made her coach proud fighting to the third period in her first match, fighting off her back multiple times. Junior Andrew Scott, wrestling through injury, lasted to end of both his matches, but came up short in points.
