Ridge View wrestles three duals

Friday, December 8, 2017

LAKE VIEW - The Ridge View wrestling team competed in three dual matches here Tuesday. The Raptors first faced off against East Sac County, and Raptors’ Coach Caleb Christensen said, “I feel like we wrestled hard. East Sac has some tough kids. We saw some good things in the wrestling room this week that transferred on to the mat. We still need to work on being more aggressive and physical, but the kids are showing that they are working on putting some things together.”

In the second dual of the nigh,t the Raptors faced off against Humboldt. Said Coach Christensen: “Humboldt is tough, they have a veteran team that has been through the system for a while now. It was good to see some hard competition to see where we stack up. We know that we have to get to work after this dual. It helps to see good teams like this that we typically don’t see during the rest of the season.”

In the team’s final dual of the night, the Raptors squared off against South Central Calhoun. Coach Chrsitensen commented : “We saw some great matches here. Lance Else faced off against top ranked opponent Brody Goodman for the second time in less than a week. The last time they met, Goodman bested him in a 10-4 bout. This time, Lance wrestled hard and took the match into overtime. We knew it was going to come to whoever got the takedown. Lance has been working hard in the weight room and wrestling room to get to one of those top spots. He gets closer every time he steps on the mat.”
