The Eden Valley-Watkins wrestlers showed up at the Norwood-Young America Tournament Saturday, Jan. 4, and finished tied for runners-up in the team competition. Eagles’ coach Dan Berg sees good things for 2014. “As coaches, we thought we wrestled very well, until the final round when we went a combined 3-7. A little rust and conditioning had a lot to do with that, but it was a good tournament to start out the fresh year, with all of our kids having some success.” Hunter Mathies and Cain Renner wrestled a great tournament and came away with championships. “Good to see Hunter get that first championship and it’s well deserved because the kid works very hard, and Cain did what he had to do to get another one,” Berg said.
Summary: 120 Tyler Donnay second place; 126 Hunter Mathies first place; 132 Logan Donnay fourth place; 138 Tyler Dockendorf fourth place; 152 John Salzl second place; 160 Grant Winter fourth place; 160 Carter Phillipp fifth place; 170 Luke Kuechle second place; 182 Cain Renner first place; 195 Lyle Miller second place.
