Wrestlers sixth at Yerington
The Douglas High wrestling team placed sixth Saturday at the Yerington Lions Club Tournament.
Douglas won one of its four dual meets during the dual team event. Two of those losses came against Battle Mountain and Yerington, the top two finishers at last year’s Division III state tournament. The Tigers beat White Pine, the third-place finisher at the 2013 state tourney.
Heavyweight Ian Kendrick posted a 4-0 record in the tournament. Three of those wins came by pin.
Freshmen Ryland DeSomber (195 pounds) and Kindel Isham (113 pounds) also compiled 3-1 records on the day. DeSomber’s highlight came in a 7-6 triple overtime win against Fernley’s C.J. Kilbride.
The Douglas wrestlers celebrate Senior Night today when they host Wooster in a regular season-ending Sierra League dual meet.
