Delays equal busy week for Horde wrestlers

L ike all of the sports programs at all of the schools across the North Country, the Granville wrestlers have lost some days of competition due to the frequent recent snowfalls and school closures.

Coming into the week the Horde already faced matches Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday before heading into weekend competition at the Shenendahowa Tournament Saturday.

Thanks to the second of three Granville snow days being used Tuesday, Jan. 18, the Horde wrestled Wednesday through Saturday without a break.

Coming back to school after a day of shoveling out, Granville took the trip south to Salem to face the Generals, pulling out a 63-20 non-league win, on the same day it had been scheduled.

The Golden Horde racked up seven pins and three forfeits out of 15 weight classes. Pinning for Granville were K. Palmer (145) 3:33, Ehntholt (152) 4:14, Hastings (285) 2:31, Cohan (103):40, N. Palmer (112) 1:08, Thomas Whipple (125) 1:59 and Hanna (135) 1:25. Granville received forfeits to Brendan Miller (130), Hayden Miller (140) and Mack Rozell (215).

The match of the week for the Golden Horde had been rescheduled by snow earlier in the month, delaying the showdown for the Wasaren League championship.

Granville once again prevailed and none of the wrestlers showed signs of fatigue after two nights of competition in a 45-29 win.

Early Friday afternoon Granville faced off with the high school team of their head coach, taking on Whitehall in non-league action.

Granville took the team win Friday behind seven forfeits from a diminished Whitehall squad, 54-28, in non-league competition. Karl Palmer (152) and Justin Duel (119) each pinned for Granville but the Railroaders took six of eight contested matches. Brendan Miller (125) lost a 10-2 decision to John Diekel and Eric Hastings (215) fell 14-3 to Zach Diekel for his second loss on the season.
