HS Wrestling: West Delaware Sweeps Double Dual In DeWitt

With their last tournament cancelled due to inclement weather, the West Delaware wrestling team picked right back up where they left off last Thursday as they swept a WaMaC Conference double dual in DeWitt last night, taking down CP-U 72-9 and the host Sabers 67-9. On the night the Hawks went 24-2 in matches, they had 18 falls, and racked up 63 takedowns and gave up only three. Nine of the Hawks’ pins came in the CP-U dual as every wrestler that won a match won by fall as they lost two matches and received three forfeits. West Delaware also had 12 wins in the dual against Central DeWitt with nine of those wins coming by fall and had an impressive 40 takedowns and gave up only one takedown. West Delaware head coach Jeff Voss says they worked a lot on getting better on their feet in the first half of the season and adds that it’s starting to show after the break:

Pending the incoming weather the Hawks will set their sights on the Perry Invitational tomorrow, and although most coaches would be worried about their team losing focus with the cancellation of tournaments Voss says he hasn’t had any troubles keeping this year’s team focused knowing the great competition they have in the practice room:
