Wrestling Braves shine at Emmetsburg

Wednesday, December 14, 2011

EMMETSBURG -- The steadily improving Cherokee Braves wrestling team split a double dual against two worthy foes here last week, even though they tied host Emmetsburg 39-39 only to lose 40-39 on criteria. The Braves then popped Alta-Aurelia 45-24 for the split.

Cherokee featured three double-pin winners, including Hunter Morrow at 126 pounds, Jack Letsche at 138, and Luke Zeimen at 160. Zac Anderson also was a double winner for the Braves at 152, pinning one opponent and beating another 4-2.

Rick Weaver, Blake Booth, and Alexx Maurer also won a match by fall for the Braves.

"I am very proud of the way the team came ready to wrestle," said Cherokee coach Austin Todd. " Blake Booth stepped up in his first varsity match of the season and got a huge pin for us in our battle with Emmetsburg. Alexx Maurer was also able to pick up his first win in our dual against Alta-Aurelia. Jack Letshe and Hunter Morrow had exciting matches as well with Jack winning in an overtime match and Hunter getting a pin in the final seconds of his match against Alta-Aurelia.

"The kids are improving each and every time they step onto the mat, but we are not quite where we want to be yet."
