Inama takes first in Wolf memorial tourney

This past weekend Anchor Kings wrestlers participated in the two-day Steve Wolf Memorial Freestyle and Greco Tournament. Friday night was Greco and only six Anchor King wrestlers participated. Blake Newman placed third. Following him Tristen Cook took second place. Seth Inama finished out the team placers with a first place finish. Intermediate (59-64) Saoirse Cook, CJ Burns, and Kyle Wells put in great efforts and had some amazing battles.

Saturday’s freestyle tournament had some great victories and battles. Some wrestlers dug deep and pushed themselves mentally and physically. Three girls participated in both the girls and boys brackets. Intermediate wrestlers Alysha Nyvall and Saoirse Cook did just that. Alysha placed second in freestyle boys and Saoirse took third in the girl’s bracket and second in the boys.

Along with their battles was a great battle physically for Cadet Alexandrea Moseley. When competing in both the girl’s and the boy’s brackets wrestlers are not given the 15-minute break between matches. Alex had to battle through four back-to-back matches with little time in between. She had to dig deep for that inner strength. She placed third in the boy’s tournament after some tough battles.

Thirty-three wrestlers participated in the freestyle tournament. Many of the young wrestlers got to experience what it is like to put on singlet, tape up their shoes, put on head gear, step on to the mat, and represent a team. All of the wrestlers made the coaching staff and parents very proud with their effort and sportsmanship. Other results are as follows:

Bantam (57-58): Landyn Woods’ place is 3rd.

Bantam (72-78): Megan Alman’s place is 3rd.

Intermediate (49-54): Justus Grimes’ place is 1st.

Intermediate (59-64): Alysha Nyvall’s place is 2nd.

The season is going great. Week 2 wrestlers of the week were Conner Lawson, Jeremy Russell, Hayley Blaine and Wayne Newman.
