SLOAN - Cherokee's wrestling Braves split a double dual here last week, defeating host Westwood 54-27, and falling 32-21 to Hinton.
Tyler Halverson, Cherokee's top-ranked Class 2A grappler at 130 pounds, pinned both foes to put his astonishing season record to 36-0, including 27 falls. His career prep record to date is 158-14-14, with 97 falls.
Other pin winners for the Braves here were Calvin Conley at 135, Steve Veit at 140, Patrick Loughlin at 145, Greg Miller at 171, and Tim Jones at 215.
"We wrestled great against Westwood," said Cherokee coach Jason Wood. "Every match we won was by fall. Greg Miller got his first varsity pin.
"We didn't match up as well against Hinton. We gave up some pins, but won some very close matches."
