Delta High School's head wrestling coach, Clayton Curtis, didn't have much information to share this past week. His Panthers competed in the tough Montrose tournament and finished with just two athletes who placed in the top five.
Shane Anderson was Delta's top placer with his third-place finish at 126.
At 152, Hunter Brasfield wrestled his way to a fourth-place finish.
There was some concern for Coach Curtis and Delta fans at 145. Morgan McCracken was injured in his first match of the tournament that was originally diagnosed as a torn rotator. After further medical examination, McCracken was reported to have a strained muscle and not a tear.
There are four wrestlers who have earned On the Mat rankings for week four; Shane Anderson at 126-11th; Irvin Hernandez at 138-12th; Morgan McCracken at 145-8th; and Alfredo Rosales at 170-8th.
The Panthers wrestle a dual match against Olathe Thursday (Jan. 12) beginning at 7 p.m. Curtis doesn't know whether McCracken will be available for the match or not.
The Panthers will travel to Alamosa for the Alamosa Invitational beginning Saturday.blog comments powered by Disqus
