Marion wrestlers split Smoky Valley duals

Staff writer

After shutting out Wichita Trinity 72-0, Marion Warrior wrestlers lost 56-15 to Smoky Valley to split their duals Thursday at Smoky Valley in Lindsborg.

“We wrestled OK,” coach Chad Adkins said. “Smoky Valley was just flat better than us. We don’t match up well with them.”

The Warriors were missing wrestlers where Smoky Valley was weakest so Marion was unable to score in those particular weight classes, Adkins said.

Marion also lost some matches that Adkins expected to win.

“We have to keep working hard and get better every time we wrestle,” he said. “Our kids will learn from their mistakes.”

Marion will wrestle again 4 p.m. Friday in Halstead.
