Wrestlers win ‘em all at Cascade duals

CASCADE– The Solon varsity wrestlers opened their season with a sweep at the Cascade dual tournament held Friday, Dec. 6.
“Great start to the year,” commented head coach Brooks McLaren. “The kids performed well in the first competition of the year.”
Louis Gnida had four pins at 120 pounds, freshman Trevor Nelson (152) finished the meet undefeated with three pins. Cole Fritz (138) and Danny Whitmore (182) finished undefeated.
“It was a gutty performance by Nate Kennedy and Whitmore in the final matches to win the last dual,” McLaren said. “Excellent performance by the team while we wait for Lance Evans to return.”
Solon defeated Clayton Ridge (54-21), host Cascade (63-18), Maquoketa (51-21) and Maquoketa Valley in a squeaker (43-33).
