They may have had school off, but the Indian wrestlers did not take any days off the mat on January 6th and 7th.
Unfortunately, the wrestling days did not go as planned. First, the Indians lost to River Dell High School by a score of 41-23. Our points came from decisions from Robbie Natelli and sophomore Jack Tskanos, two pins from Will Morris and George Dvoynos, and a technical fall from Matt Beyer. This marked Tskanos's first win of the season.
Their next match was at Butler High School on the 7th of January. Down in Morris County, we managed decisions from Natelli and Morris, a major decision from Nolan Shields, a pin from Dvoynos, and a technical fall from Jake Prusha. This totaled to 21 points. But to Butler's 46, it was no good as PV dropped their second match in as many days.
As Coach Gallione along with standout wrestlers Shields and Beyer have mentioned in the recent past, these Indian wrestlers are definitely getting better but they have a lot to work on as well. These wreslters will only get more experience as they see more matches, and we can only hope that means that the Indians are traveling in a positive direction.
