Raptors take 5th at Kingsley-Pierson Tournament

Wednesday, January 30, 2013

KINGSLEY - The Ridge View wrestling team was in action on Saturday, taking part in the Kingsley-Pierson Tournament, where they wound up with a fifth place finish overall.

The Raptors turned in a team total of 116 on the day. Pocahontas Area won the tournament with a score of 185.

"The coaches were happy with the effort the kids gave throughout the tournament," said head coach Scott Phelps. "We are also extremely pleased with the improvement and progress that a lot of these kids are making as the season progresses. Many of these kids are inexperienced and are getting a lot of mat time that will only going to help them down the road. Many of them are filling in for other wrestlers who have got injured or because of sickness."

The Raptors were led by a pair of first place finishers as Dru Kenny topped Kingsley-Pierson's John McNaughton, 13-11, to take top honors at 160, and Nathan Myrice won by fall over M-M-C's Levi Letsch in 3:27 to take first at heavyweight.

Henry Sippel fell 6-3 to Marcus-Meriden-Cleghorn's Ben Phillips to take second at 220, Kelby Wunschel notched a 10-3 win over Hinton's Lucas Vondrak to take third at 106, Tristin Stibbins won by fall over Kingsley-Pierson's Adam Sitzman in 27 seconds to take third at 132, Dillon Kunneke fell to Akron-Westfield's Chance Grant in 52 seconds to place fourth at 170, and Sergio Carbajal added a sixth place showing at 138.

Ridge View will be back at it tonight, when they travel to Wall Lake to take on East Sac County, Alta/Aurelia and Storm Lake to wrap up their dual meet season.
