E arly season sports stuff.
Matt Bernard topped 600 with a 617 against North Warren. Not sure if he used a putter or his driver but outstanding production from the senior.
For the Wrestler…
Leading the way for fastest pin so far: senior Kurt Ehntholt at 140 pounds against Robinson from Warrensburg at the home opener needed just 32 seconds to end his match. I can recall some 10-and-less second pins so I don’t think Ehntholt will walk away with that award at the banquet just yet; I look for him to have another entry into this category before the season is out.
Others: at 50 seconds Paul Hanna at 135 pounds as Hanna goes from hammering receivers to hammering wrestlers.
The team looked good Thursday night even as Coach Palmer said all of the pieces weren’t quite in place coming off of the Thanksgiving holiday along with a little bit of illness.
I hear that Corinth also dominated in their opener and word is this team is going to be tougher than last year’s squad despite graduating some upper tier talent. Even in this early going the end of this season looks like it will be action packed.
Thursday’s match heart pounding exciting with a great atmosphere helped out by a good-sized crowd fun, fun, fun.
This first home match also means the new gym floor was officially broken in by a Golden Horde win by the wrestling team. Somebody should write that down…
