Youthful Braves drop wrestling double dual

Wednesday, January 27, 2010

Cherokee's lone senior, Loughlin, records two falls

The Cherokee Braves lone senior, Patrick Loughlin, pinned both of his foes, but open weights and youthful mistakes cost the Braves team-wise as they dropped a Lakes Conference wrestling double dual to Hull Western Christian and Storm Lake here Thursday night.

The Wolfpack beat the Braves 45-30, and the Tornadoes prevailed 51-28.

Loughlin, who has fashioned a superb 78-43 career record thus far for the Braves, pinned HWC's tough Kyle Westra in the closing minute, and then quick-pinned Storm Lake's Michael Espenio in just 42 seconds to record his 10th fall of the season and run his season record to a shiny 20-6.

Jack Letsche at 135, and Miah Back at 285 also won a match by fall for Cherokee.

"We gave up too many falls against HWC," noted Cherokee coach Jason Wood. "We wrestled better against Storm Lake."
