HS Wrestling: Thursday 12-17 Results

By Jamie Vaske-Associate Director of Sports:

West Delaware’s wrestling team moved to 2-1 in WaMaC dual action as they defeated Beckman 58-24 Thursday night inside the Seedorff Gymnasium in Manchester. The meet started at heavyweight and the Hawks struck first as junior Kaleb Zieser pinned Beckman sophomore Wade Rave in 1:46 putting the Hawks up 6-0. The Blazers then battled back as sophomore Jake Recker pinned Jordan Rausch to cut West Delaware’s lead to six, but back-to-back technical falls from freshman Mitchell Mangold and senior Owen Ward, and a pin by senior Rikki Million put the Hawks up 34-12. West Delaware led by 28 points heading into the last match and an exciting finish to the meet as Hawk junior Sam Johnson led 11-7 after back and forth first and second periods Johnson chose down to start the third. In the final frame Johnson picked up a reversal and quickly put Funke on his back for the third time in the match and picked up the fall in 4:57 to give the Hawks their fifth pin and 10th victory of the night. West Delaware head coach Voss comments that he has seen much improvement from just one week ago.
