The Sandy Valley Wrestling Team traveled to Claymont to compete in the Claymont Super Duals. The Cardinals entered into the event a bit short handed with 9 wrestlers in the lineup. The Cards dropped all their matches but not without a fight losing to Minerva 42-39, Claymont 45-29, Solon 59-24, Tri-Valley 52-21 and West Holmes 66-6. Leading the way for the Cardinals were Wyatt Moyer, Seth Armstrong and Justin King all recording 4 wins. Posting 3 victories for the Cardinals were Brody Marks and Branden Boggs. Tallying 2 victories were Bear Watkins and Matt Gentry.
It is extremely hard to win dual meets with 5 forfeits in your line up. We do not have the luxury of having team depth. If things go wrong it certainly shows up in dual meets when you need as many in the lineup as possible to put points on the board. Overall, I believe we wrestled OK against some very strong competition. The guys we have that remain dedicated and focused are getting quality matches and are becoming battle tested, which should pay off heading into the post season.
The Cardinals will host Garaway and Fairless in a triangular match on Weds. Jan 15th at 6pm.
