RHS wrestlers 3rd at Lawrence Co. tourney
Sports Editor

Solid contributions across the board helped Robinson High School's wrestling team to a third-place finish at the Lawrence County Tournament Saturday (Dec. 2).

"To say that we had a lot of fun Saturday at Lawrenceville would be an understatement," RHS head coach Joe Cunningham said. "It has been a long time since RHS Wrestling has brought home a trophy from a tournament and I really did not think that this would be the year, but the kids really came through as a team."

The Maroons recorded five third-place finishes and a pair of fourth-place efforts on their way to scoring 147 points, which placed them behind only Mt. Carmel, who won with 197 and Olney, who finished second with 157. Rounding out the 10-team field were Harrisburg (143), Lawrenceville (123), Anna-Jonesboro (100), Herrin (87), Carterville (77.5), Fairfield (67) and Carmi (56).

Finishing in third, all with 3-1 records on the day were Jordan Caballero at 106, Landon Shonk at 113, Elliott Stifle at 120, Jeff Hermann at 138 and Grayson Wolf at 182.

Meanwhile, finishing fourth with a 3-2 record was Nick Eby at 160, while Alex Hermann finished fourth at 145 with a 2-2 mark.

"The five third place finishers are kids that we are coming to expect big things from," Cunningham said. "We thought that Alex might have finished a bit higher this year after finishing second in last year's tournament, but he ran into a pretty tough bracket. Nick just keeps on putting out solid performances at 160."

Robinson also had several wrestlers that didn't place but won matches, as Myles Land went 2-2 at 285, while Tanis Lake (126), Nick Rice (132), J.D. Caballero (152), Roger Cornwell (170) and Fernando Zuniga (195) all went 1-2 in their respective weight classes.

The Maroons also had quite a few wrestlers compete as individuals and a lot of them picked up wins, including Alex Douglas, who went 3-2 at 170, along with Ethan Zakowski (106), Cedric Johnson (113), Rusty Littlejohn (120), Bryan Dillery (160), Alan Wiseman (160), Mikey Russell (170) and Dalton Davis (285) with a win apiece.

"I want to publicly thank Lawrenceville coach Sam Hyre for allowing all of the JV Kids to participate Saturday," Cunningham said. "All of our JV kids wrestled very well today and that was very satisfying because it speaks well for our future. I am so proud of the JV wrestlers on our team".
