Raptor wrestlers at K-P Invite
KINGSLEY - The Ridge View wrestlin team competed at the Kingsley-Pierson Invitational Tournament here on Saturday January 25th.
Ridge View Coach Caleb Christensen commented, “It was a good day for us overall, we saw some good competition, and it is good to see some teams that we usually don’t see throughout the year. The coaches felt that it was a good tournament to have before we head into postseason wrestling. Our guys wrestled hard all day, and it gave us a good look at what we need to work on in the practice room this week. Lance Else had a couple of tough matches that he was down in and he managed to work out of tough situations for wins. His brother Evan wrestled #8 ranked Montana Jackson to a 3-0 match - coming up just short of the win. It was a great match for him to get under his belt, he wrestled tough the entire six minutes.
Trent Miller had a good day, getting two more pins, and falling just short of first place, losing to Darlyn Marquez of West Sioux in the finals. Trent is starting to come a long way this year with his technique. We will be interested to see what he can do in the postseason.
Andres Carbajal battled on the backside, making it to the consolation finals, where he pinned his way to a 3rd place finish. His only loss of the day was to the eventual champion.
Final Results for Ridge View wrestlers: Dylan Wood - 1-3, finished 6th; Andres Carbajal - 3-1, finished 3rd; Lance Else - 3-1, finished 3rd; Trenton Miller - 2-1, finished 2nd; Evan Else - 1-1, finished 2nd
