WRESTLERS RETURN TO STATE, SEEK 4-PEAT

By Wyatt Lester Posted February 15, 2012

Lowry attended the Northern Nevada Divisional tournament on February 11 and had a few interesting wins over some tough teams that have contenders for state titles. Lowry has upheld their winning thus far in the season and it seems that wrestling skill is still going strong.

Teams that attended the divisional match were Lowry, Elko, South Tahoe, Dayton, Spring Creek, Fernley, and Fallon. Some teams like Spring Creek showed a few tough matchups such as their Nick CdeBaca wrestling against Lowry’s Ryan Nelson in the 182lb. weight class. There are many teams to watch out for but Lowry has been continually showing them wrestling at its best.

“We have a lot of kids going to state, we have our heads held high, and we have a great advantage right now over all other teams,” said sophomore Tytin Johnson.

“If we stay on track and wrestle like we have been wrestling, we have a good shot at winning state,” said sophomore Eric Brooks.

Team scores:

  1. Lowry High School -301.5
  2. Spring Creek High School -246.5
  3. Fernley High School -150
