J-Hawk Wrestling Headlines
Congratulations to our Senior Class of 2014!!
Josh Allen, Michael Moncivais, William Orr, PJ Rashed, Cierra Maas, Emily Walton and Cole Speth!
We will miss you all!
The freestyle season started at the Mick Pickford tournament on Saturday. Four J-Hawks made the trek to Ft Madison. They were Brenden Baker, Kyle Briggs, Jake Hensel, and Tavian Rashed. The wrestlers are grouped by weight so you never know where you will fall in your particular grouping - weight wise.
It's always interesting to see how much weight wrestlers (from every school) have gained since the season and where they will fall in the groupings. This makes for interesting and different match ups from the regular season. An example would be that one of Brenden's opponents was about a foot taller than him. Brenden wrestled well but went 2-2 and finished with a 3rd place medal.
Our super freshman Tavian lost a hard fought battle with a very defensive wrestler finishing 3-1 on the day, taking home the silver medal.
In Kyle's last match the official was evidently using international rules (or lack of) and letting the wrestlers pound each other's heads as both wrestlers walked away bleeding from heavy hands to the face. Fortunately, bleeding is nothing new to Kyle and he had is hand raised. Kyle finished 4-0 on the day and a gold medal.
Impressive was that win or lose the guys tried different techniques than they used during the regular season which will help them to develop even more offense next season. Keep up the good work.
Baker takes 3rd and Briggs takes 7th
at 2014 State Tournament.
Both of our boys wrestled great smart matches and took it to their opponents! Congrats to our entire team. This was a TERRIFIC Season and we know that things will only get better. We have a bunch of boys and coaches that know this was not where we wanted to finish. Thank you to everyone who helped make this a great season.
Our J-Hawks also finished in 7th place at the State Dual Team Tournament. WHAT A YEAR!!!
