Mishawaka Wrestling Alumni Night
Updated: Mar 5, 2019
The MHS Wrestling Team recognized past alumni last Thursday at their meet against Riley. Men from all around the city returned to their alma mater to celebrate their accomplishments as wrestlers. The group included our very own Mr. Faulkner and Coach Cornett himself. This tribute kicked off the highly eventful and exciting meet that followed.
However, the team unfortunately lost to Riley 37-36. Our wrestlers won 7 matches and Riley won 7 matches. Gabe Weeks, Preston Risner, Deven Beaver, Luke Sinkovics, Austin Faulkner, Jake Hess, and Alex Faulkner all won for the Cavemen. Coach, Charlie Cornett stated, “The difference in the meet was that Riley pinned us in 5 of the 7 matches we lost. If one of those matches does not end in a pin, we would have won the meet. With regard to preparation for the Sectional, we really are not going to do anything different than we do for any other competition. We have wrestled almost all of the teams in the Sectional already so we know what to expect. If we wrestle hard and continue to compete the way we have the last couple of weeks, we could have the majority of our team continue on next week to the Regional.” The Sectional takes place this Saturday at 9 o'clock in the morning, held in The Cave. Come out and support your fellow Cavemen as they go out there and intend to leave everything out on the mats!
