Wrestling: Tigers compete at Lowry
December 26, 2012
The Douglas High wrestling team competed in the Cody Louk Invitational in Winnemucca over the weekend with strong results.
The Tigers, who start seven freshmen, have been seeing steady improvement from its roster through the first few weeks of the season.
Saturday’s tournament was no different as Douglas had a number of wrestlers produce winning records at the 21-team tournament that included regional powerhouses like Fallon, Reno and Lowry.
Douglas junior Chance Thoene took fifth place in the 275-pound class for the Tigers’ top performance of the day.
Ian Kendrick went 3-2 at 220 pounds, as did Jordan Peters at 170 pounds, Brandon James at 152 pounds and Jason Trenkle at 182 pounds.
Laird Anderson (126 pounds) and Elias Anderson (132) each picked up two wins.
Laird Anderson trailed 8-4 with just 40 seconds remaining in his third round match, but managed a big comeback as he claimed a 9-8 win.
Parker Hoshizaki went 2-2 in the 160-pound bracket for Douglas as well.
Douglas next competes in the Sierra Nevada Classic at the Reno Livestock Events Center later this week.
The Tigers return to the Minden mats Jan. 9 for a dual match vs. Galena, which begins at 6:30 p.m.
