Tonight the Varsity Wrestling Dawgs participated in the Smiths Duals tournament. We took on 3 good 7A teams, winning once and falling twice.
First up for the Dawgs were the Enterprise Wildcats. We started off slowly and it hurt us as we fell behind 9-39. We rebounded, but it was too little, too late-final score vs Enterprise-21-45 Wildcats. In the second match, we faced the Prattville Lions in a good dual. The Dawgs pulled out the 42-36 victory. Finally, we faced the Smiths Station Panthers. The Panthers jumped on us hard, defeating us 12-66. The 1-2 effort brings the Dawgs season total to 8-12.
Top individual performances for the Dawgs tonight:
- Jack Pritchard (195# class) was 3-0 with 3 pins and 18 team points scored
- Ari Brogdon (182# class) was 2-0 with 12 team points scored
- Brayden Wilson (120# class) was 2-1 and 12 team points scored
- T’harra Brunson (160# class) was 2-1 with a pin and 12 team points scored.
Although the other 6 Wrestling Dawgs who participated didn’t score as many team points, they wrestled HARD and kept on fighting!
Our next action will be Tuesday, Jan 26 as we host the Prattville Lions and Reeltown Rebels. Tuesday is Senior Night-we will honor our 1 senior-Adam Phillips. Hope to see you then. Tickets will be available first come, first served on gofan.co
