Wrestlers take 6th despite depleted roster

Staff writer

Marion High School took sixth place as a team with 107 points at a Saturday wrestling tournament in Eureka despite a diminished roster.

“We were a little off this weekend,” coach Chad Adkins said Monday. “We came out flat and lost some matches we shouldn’t have.”

The Warriors missed 126-pounder Ezra Darnall, 138-pounder Noah Albin, 170-pounder Zac Dvorak, and 182-pounder Adam Janzen.

The Warriors still managed some notable feats.

Individually, Kyle Palic took first at 220-pounds. He also was presented with an award for getting the most pins in the quickest amount of time.

Palic’s record is now 21-2 for the season with 18 pins.

Jarrett Johnson came in second place at 113 pounds, Cody Shipman was fourth at 120 pounds, Bryce Shults and Tyler Palic took fifth at 132 and 195 pounds, and Max Gerlach and Remington Putter placed 6th at 106 and 160 pounds.

“We have to use this week to clean up some mistakes and add a little to our offense and conditioning,” Adkins said.
