Knight wrestlers have busy week
The Tyler Consolidated Silver Knight wrestlers season is in full swing now with the grapplers seeing action at least twice every week now. Head coach of the team, Chad Snider says he is enjoying working with the team and sees potential in every wrestler.
Last week the Silver and Black traveled to New Martinsville to take part in a tri-match with Magnolia and Brooke. With wins by John Brosky (112), Brandon Grimes (171), Nate Taylor (152), Brody Northcraft (160), Adam Cross (189), Greg McDougle (189) and John Epsilantis (hvywt), the Knights were able to get the team win over the Blue Eagles, 39-31.
Against the Bruins of Brooke, the Knights were able to gain some wins, but fell in the overall scoring by a margin of 57-21. Brosky, Taylor, Northcraft and Grimes each scored wins against the Bruins.
Consolidated traveled to Parkersburg on Friday and Saturday to take part in the West Virginia Duals, hosted by Parkersburg South High School. Along with the Patriots, the Knights faced several ranked teams and wrestlers during the Dual-Tournament.
Parkersburgh South, the premier high school wrestling team in the state, defeated the Knights soundly, not allowing a single win for a Knight during the team competition. The team also fell to Caldwell, Lewis County, LaSalle, OH, Springboro, OH and Cloverleaf, OH. But the Knights were able to score wins on other teams at the competition, including East Fairmont, Parkersburg South’s reserve team, and St. Albans.
On Saturday the Silver Knight wrestlers will travel to Roane County for the LKC wrestling tournament.
