Grapplers make quick work of Storm, tune up for Hermiston tonight
The Crook County High School wrestling team ran their league mark to 3-0 with a dominating 72-3 victory over Summit High School on Thursday.
The Cowboys won 13 of 14 matches on the night, nine by fall, and two by forfeit, losing only the 160-pound match on the night.
"I'm just proud of the kids," said Head Coach Mike Shinkle. "They work hard and they know how to win. They get used to winning and that's always nice. That brings us to 23-3 on the year in the dual meet season."
The Cowboys face Hermiston tonight in a rematch of the championship of the Oregon Wrestling Classic which the Bulldogs won 37-27. The winner is expected to be the league dual meet champion.
Tyler Jordan (112), Riley Ward (125), Kody Dixon (135), Taylor Coyle (140), Jake Shinkle (152) Micah Perry (171) Howie Mole (215) and Tyrel Albert (285) all had pins on the night, while Jared George (103) and Cameron Anderson (145) won by forfeit.
"We kind of got on a roll there and had lots of pins," said Shinkle. "That was nice and hopefully we can keep that momentum going for Hermiston. We are going to try to match up the same as we did and just toe the line and see what happens."
