NHS Wrestlers Split at SAC #2

The Newberry Indian wrestling team went to Rudyard last Wednesday for the second Straits Area Conference meet.

They had to compete against the Sault Blue Devils first. The match started with Nathan Magnusson grappling with David Cole in the 135 weight class. Magnusson led 6 - 4 at the end of the first period, and finished him off in the second period to claim the first six points of the night.

Jacob Gribbell followed at 140 and pinned Kayden King with 42 seconds left in the first period.

Lance Bowler went to the mat at 145 and pinned Joseph Cole at 1:34 in the first period.

Cameron Depew got a win by forfeit at 152, as did Kevin Wynn at 160 and Alex Henry at 171, to give Newberry a 36—0 lead.

The Indians forfeited the 189 weight class, which gave the Sault its first points of the night. Both teams forfeited the 215 and 285 slots, which earned neither any points.

Blue Devil Connor Habusta got six points by a Newberry forfeit at 103. He was followed by teammate Adam Craven at 112.

Newberry’s Noah Gelecki stopped the giving-away process by pinning Wyatt Miller in the 119 weight class, and Jared Norris finished off the rumble with a pin of Nathan Heyrman.

All eight Newberry wrestlers competing got a win, either by a pin or forfeit.

The Indians then met the St. Ignace team, but lost to the Saints 48—34.

This time they started at the 145 weight class, which Bowler won by a forfeit. Cameron Symonds defeated Greg Paquin. Henry took over the 160-pound slot and could not pin Trevor Matson, but won four points by a 16 - 6 decision.

Freshman Ivan Oswald, wrestling at his first high school match, took over at the 171 weight class, but was pinned by Caleb Brown.

Newberry forfeited the 189, 215, 285, 103 and 112 slots, which put the Saints up 36—16. Gelecki and Norris won by forfeits at 119 and 125 respectfully.

Newberry had to forfeit the 130 slot, so trailed 42— 28, leaving the match up to Magnusson and Gribbell.

Magnusson won by a major decision to make the score 42—34, but Gribbell fell in defeat for the final score of 48—34.

Newberry’s grapplers travel to St. Ignace today, Wednesday, January 10, for the third SAC battle.
