The late-season staple. The last tournament before the State Run, Districts start this week and this is the last chance to perfect moves, get in mat shape, and shake off any mat rust you may have from coming back from an injury. Your last preparation before Districts. Approximately 256 High School wrestlers will start the Journey toward a state title this week. The Ridge is the last stop before you get on that train. It was nice to get to the tournament and not have dogs in the fight. I could walk around and talk to friends and not worry about anything other than the actual matches. There were a few interesting ones to be had. But let’s start with the Team Race.
Cy-Ranch 203.5 pts–Coach Potter as always has his team primed for a deep state-run. Top performers: Christopher “Prince of Persistence” Stiles 1st 106, Kooper Good 1st 132, Kohen Cuffman 1st 138
Langham Creek 154 pts–Coach Murray and the young guns from Langham Creek are looking good and posed for a solid state-run with four 1st place trophies their top performers were. Eli Esquivel 1st 126, Logan Soileau 1st 150, Evan Sebesta 1st 175, Bryan Sorto 1st 190.
Bridgeland 140 pts–Coach Sarabian had a couple of wrestlers ready to go, and a couple that is ready for home mat advantage come February 17th and 18th. His top performers were. Jaime Craven 1st 165, Omar Khan 3rd 285, Kamren Rucker 3rd 113, Kaleb Williamson 3rd 120.
