On December 2, the Trego Wrestling team headed for the St. Francis wrestling tournament.

Teammate Dillon Dunn also wrestled well and brought home a second place medal. Dunn pinned Juan Mancillas of Leoti. Next, he won by a 7-6 decision over Drew Brook of Sterling. In his last match, Dunn fell to Luis Ledsesma.

Bringing home a third place medal was TJ Hafliger. In Hafliger’s first match, he pinned Taylor Scott of Burlington. He next faced Hayden Wiltfong of Norton, but he was pinned. Hafliger then pinned Taylor Scott of Burlington. He also pinned Luin Norris.

Coach Jeremy Samson had an outlook on how the meet went saying, “The varsity team traveled to St. Francis.  We took six wrestlers all six won mathces.  Everyone competed well and look to build and improve each week.  Dillon Dunn was selected wrestler of the week for his second place efforts.  He knocked off a returning state qualifier from Colorado in the semi-finals.”

Also participating were Colby Burkhart, Jory Micek, and Shaye Aumiller.

The Lady Eagles triumphed with a final score of 48-32.

Malinowsky also stated, “The team [played] really good defense.”

Sophomore Libby Frost was the high scorer with 14 points. The next two highest were freshmen Lili Shubert and Tillie Malinowsky who both scored 9 points.
