Horde second at Ken Harrison

T he South Glens Falls Bulldogs were rude guests in their first appearance at the Ken Harrison Memorial Lions Tournament on Saturday, Dec. 18, as they prevented the Golden Horde from repeating, beating Granville, 145.5 to 127, for the team title.

Granville went three for five, including tournament most outstanding wrestler Brendan Miller (125), but it was not enough as South Glens Falls won three of four in the finals to outlast the Horde.

In addition to Miller, voted the MOW by tournament coaches after his 2-0 finals win over three-time defending champion Bellows Falls, Vt.’s Cyle Weyant, Karl Palmer (140) and Kurt Ehntholt (145) earned titles for the Horde. Nathaniel Palmer (112) and Justin Duel earned runner-up honors to round out the five Horde finalists. 

Palmer handled the Bulldogs’Thomas Carta in the finals at 140 in the only heads-up match between the top two teams. Also winning for the Golden Horde were Brendan Miller (125) and Kurt Ehntholt (145), while Nathaniel Palmer (112) and Justin Duel (119) were runners-up.

In the 18.5 point loss Granville missed the services of Eric Hastings (215), a likely top seed who was out of town and did not wrestle in the tournament.
