EV-W wrestlers fall short v Kimball

W-IMG 2973According to believers in “biorhythms,” a person’s life is affected by rhythmic biological cycles which affect one’s ability in various domains, such as mental, physical, and emotional activity. Apparently, the majority of the Eagles’ wrestlers were experiencing very low, physical biorhythm levels last Thursday night. 

In the 14 EV-W v Kimball wrestling matches, there were more pins on the mats than in grandma’s sewing box. Eleven of the matches resulted in falls (pins) for the victorious combatants. Unfortunately, just 3 of those pins belonged to the Eagles. The home town boys put up a valiant effort, but this night would belong to the Kimball Cubs. EV-W’s Matt Schindler, 106-pound division; Logan Donnay, 113-pound division; and Hunter Mathies, 126-pound division, achieved falls in each of their bouts

Coach Dan Berg summed up the evening. “As a whole, we wrestled very well, but to win duals like that you have to shave points and not get pinned.” Win or lose, Berg sees the positives. “It was fun to see the packed house and promote the elementary programs before the match. That’s when wrestling is fun – when the gym is roaring like that!” Berg remains very confident in his team, and despite the disappointing Kimball match, he still sees a final four appearance at year’s end. Cain Renner (EV-W) pinned Skyler Schiefelbein for one of 5 EV-W pins.
