The best is yet to come

Wrestlers take their lumps against WD, rebound with first at North Cedar

MANCHESTER West Delaware handed Solon a lop-sided wrestling loss, but the Spartans responded by taking first place at North Cedars invitational over the weekend.
Solons varsity wrestlers were on the wrong end of a 68-7 dual loss at Manchester against the Hawks Thursday, Dec. 10.
Hayden Taylor and Caleb Ebert provided the Spartans only points.
Taylor took a 9-1 major decision over Kyle Cole at 160 pounds, while Ebert came from behind with a takedown and a near-fall in the third period for an 8-7 decision against Logan Peyton at 145.
We knew we would be tested against West Delaware, noted co-head coach Aaron Hadenfeldt. They are one of the best teams, if not the best team, in the state regardless of class.
Hadenfeldt and co-coach T.J. Bevans were still proud of the effort.
Having a young team, specifically freshmen, see that type of team is good for them, Hadenfeldt said. It helps them see what we should be striving for.
Both teams had their depth on display with a 17-match junior varsity (JV) dual that included four bouts at 220, and three at 170 and 152.
West Delaware captured the JV meet as well, but by a much closer score, 54-45.
Our JV kids were able to get matches, which is the ultimate goal, Hadenfeldt observed. We've had a number of JV meets cancelled already, so anytime we can get them matches is a good night. They're constantly improving and working hard in the room, along with the rest of the team.
That depth helped Saturday, Dec. 12, in the 10-team North Cedar Invitational.
Solon captured first with 195 points just ahead of Wilton (186) and New London (168.5).
Taylor, Gage Marty (220) and Nash Altman (285) took first place for the Spartans, with second-place showings by Kaden Lamm (138), Ebert (145) and Lucas Kampman (170). Tyler Hancox (195) and Lucas TePoel (182) provided third-place points.
Again, we saw good fight out of most of our guys, even kids who may not have won their match, they fought, Hadenfeldt said. That's what we're looking for. It's not always about winning and losing, it's about giving it your best effort and we have a lot of kids that are doing that right now.
Taylor cruised with a 40-second pin in his semifinal and a technical fall in the final. Marty and Altman pinned all their opponents.
We've got some kids starting to show leadership and take some of the younger guys under their wing, Hadenfeldt commented. Wrestling's unlike any other sport in the physical and mental demands it takes on a body, so for the older guys to start taking that ownership says a lot about them and will help our team out in multiple ways.
The Spartans travel to Maquoketa Thursday, Dec. 17, for a double dual, then head to Fort Madison Saturday, Dec. 19, for a tournament to end the 2020 schedule.
We are pleased with where we're at right now, Hadenfeldt reported. We've wrestled three duals against three teams that were in the state finals last year, so that's a tough way to start out the year. Our guys have seen the most difficult part of our schedule and we're looking ahead, not behind. We need to continue to work hard and take things day by day. We're proud of our guys so far, but know that we've got a long way to go. We'll get there, our kids do whatever we ask, and that's the best part about coaching these kids.
