(February 5th, 2015) – DELTA: Going into not one, but two meets with several competitors unable to participate, Wauseon knew they were in for a challenge as Delta hosted both the Indians and the Locomotives of Montpelier.
Wauseon went up against Delta first, losing the meet against the elite team 48-22. Giving up 3 forfeits put the Indians into an 18 point deficit before matches even began, however.
At 132 pounds, Hunter Yackee had a great match against John Mlynarek, pinning the Panther wrestler in 44 seconds. Tre Campbell was able to win the 182 pound division, pinning Mark Francois in 4:19. In the 192 pound match, Tony Banister won a 15-2 decision over Jaccob Wolford.
Wauseon was able to defeat Montpelier in their second meet of the night, despite giving up those same 18 points in forfeits, due partly to the fact that the Locos had to forfeit two matches themselves. Sandro Ramirez was able to score a technical fall against Ramey Dean at the 126 pound level. At 285, Alex Sosa pinned Chris Blosser in 1:35.
For Montpelier, Jordan Birdsall claimed a 7-2 victory over Derek Schuette at 152 pounds. Hunter Mckelvey scored a pin over Jackson Sluder in 3:18, giving Montpelier a win in the 170 pound division.
Overall, Wauseon took the meet 50-21.
