The Fort Riley Middle School wrestling team went to Eisenhower in Manhattan and wrestled both Anthony and Eisenhower Middle Schools. They first wrestled Anthony Middle where the Troopers won 9 matches and lost 8. Then then wrestled Eisenhower Middle, where they won 17 and only lost 4. all 17 wins were by pins.
Coach Bob Shefelton said he was pleased at the way the Troopers wrestled. “They team was very much into all matches and supporting their teammates..I have said it before, but with only 4 who are in their 2nd year and the remaining 15 this their 1st year, I think we are wrestling very well. Davin Dewaine, pinned his opponent in just 11 seconds and that makes him 6-0. I am also so proud that the only ones who do not have wins, are the ones who have been out with injuries. “
“We will have a big challenge next Tuesday when we travel to Abilene. This will show us just how good we really are. Then the following Friday, we take our A team to Topeka Seaman Middle School.”
