After getting their first week of the season under their belts, Dalton’s wrestling team finished 5-0 on the day at a dual meet tournament at Garaway this past Saturday.
Wins: Alliance 38-33; Garaway 54-21; New Philadelphia 51-28, Riverview 51-24, Wadsworth B 35-35, won on criteria of winning more matches.
“Overall, I told my guys that as a team it’s tough to ask for anything more than winning all five duals that we wrestled in,” Coach Kenton Lemon wrote in an email. “But individually, we still have work to do. We need to continue to get into better shape as a team and we need to start committing to our offense on our feet with more consistency. I said it a week ago and I will say it again this week, this is the most coachable group that I’ve had to this point. In the dual meet setting sometimes you have to “adjust on the fly.” This team does a really nice job of adjusting, trusting the process and their coaches. Most of the time our coaching points are very small details, but in wrestling most of the time that is the difference in a win or a loss.”
Leading the Bulldogs were: Bram McCourt (120) 4-1; Greyson Siders (145) 4-1; Tate Geiser (152) 5-0; Eric Miller (182) 5-0; Sean Geiser (195) 5-0; Austin Ryder (220) 5-0.
“We travel to Lexington this weekend for a tri-match with Lexington and Mans-field senior,” Lemon wrote. “We are just excited to be wrestling every day and getting to compete as much as possible.”
