Sidney Struckmeyer won Holyoke’s only medal at the Arnold Torgerson Invitational Wrestling Tournament at Fort Collins High School Saturday, Jan. 11.
The Dragon heavyweight finished fourth in the tourney action. “He just keeps improving each week,” said coach Cutter Garrison.
Three other Dragons were one round from placing in the tournament. They included Eric Rojo at 106 pounds, Nathan Miles at 170 and Marques Harvey at 182. Luke Stewart also went 2-2 for the day at 160 pounds.
“I was happy to get back to wrestling after our long layoff from Christmas break,” said Garrison. He was pleased with the team’s conditioning and shape but noted it’s the little mistakes that are costing them matches.
“We will go back to work and continue to drill and work on our mistakes, preparing for regionals when the real season begins,” added the coach.
Windsor won the Jan. 11 tournament with 232 points, followed by Smoky Hill 144, Poudre 132.5, Fort Collins 109, Northridge 102, Fossil Ridge 100, Legacy 98.5, Mountain View 90, Roosevelt 85.5, Loveland 73, Sand Creek 57, Gateway 47 and Holyoke 36.
