Traveling across the Ohio, the Tyler Consolidated Silver Knight wrestling team competed against the River Pilots in a dual last week, coming out with the loss to the Red and Gray, 57-15.
Though they came out on the short end of the overall team score, several young Knights earned valuable mat experience with the outing at River.
