Hawk wrestlers earn two victories Thursday
The Lynnville-Sully wrestling team picked up two lopsided victories and narrowly missed out on a third Thursday night at a tournament in Belle Plaine.
The Hawks defeated Hardwick-Ladora-Victor by a whopping score of 78-3 and host Belle Plaine by a final of 60-24, but suffered a narrow 40-34 loss to Sigourney to wrap up the night.
“The kids wrestled well tonight going two out of three, but just couldn’t quite overcome a good Sigourney squad,” Hawks coach Steve Northcutt said. “We need to work on different things, but overall things are looking good as a team. We will continue to build on every meet and tournament so we can reach our goals at the end of the season.”
Triple winners for the Hawks on the night included Cole Nickell (106 pounds), Colton Roorda (113), Jamison Goodyk (126), Payton Scandridge (138) and Caden Doll (160).
