Wrestlers Earn Honors In Cut Bank
Wolf Point’s wrestlers were happy to be back in action this weekend after a long holiday break.
The Wolves wrestled in Chester on Thursday, Jan. 5, at their mixer. Joli Beston, Maddox Reum, Jesse Reed and Kasey Reed all were 2-0. Sam Boysun and Jayden Dominique went 0-2.
“Sam is working hard and figuring stuff out. He is only a freshman wrestling at 152,” Wolf Point coach Scott Vandall said. “He is kind of like a boy in a man’s world there. These are young men with testosterone and they are strong. He is doing good. Jayden is an eighth grader in his first year wrestling. We are looking to get him experience and see these big meets so that he knows what he is getting into next year. He is a great kid and puts in the work. We will get better each weekend.”
The coach added, “Kasey, Jesse, Joli and Maddox all had a good night. They wrestled hard and keep pushing some through some soreness. They have all done great jobs this year.”
The Wolves competed in Cut Bank on Friday and Saturday.
Dominique and Reum went 0-2 in Cut Bank. “They wrestled hard, they did a lot of good things. This was Jayden’s first competition in high school wrestling this weekend. He will keep working hard getting better. He could make it exciting at divisionals.”
Boysun had a good meet as he went 1-2, one match from placement. “He had a bad morning match on Saturday and was quite upset at himself,” Vandall said. “He knew he didn’t do well and that makes it easier because you don’t have to say anything.”
Beston took third with a 4-1 record for the weekend. “She also had a bad first round on Saturday. She made a little mistake and got caught. That was her second loss on the year,” Vandall said. “She came back and did what she needed to do. She will be looking for this girl next weekend that’s for sure.”
Jesse Reed did great this weekend and went 6-2 there. He ended up in fourth place. He lost his second match Friday to a Havre wrestler was the sixth ranked wrestler in Class A. He lost by three points.
“He made a little mistake and cost him the three points and the match,” Vandall said. “He fought back hard the next two and lost the match for third place. It wasn’t his best match, but we will live with it and he is an eighth grader.”
Kasey Reed had a good weekend and went 6-2. “Kasey wrestled his butt off this weekend. He had a great meet. He lost a close second match to a Havre kid,” Vandall said. “But we got a sweet revenge in the fifthsixth place match. Man, he wasn’t happy with that loss. He felt he should have beaten that kid. He proved it. Kasey is going to start making some noise these next couple meets.”
