Weiser wrestling team got back to work this past week opening up SRV action on Wednesday with a packed senior night against both Homedale and non-conference opponent, New Plymouth.  
 Weiser had seven seniors to celebrate this year and celebrate they did. Seniors included were:  Cale Brassfield, Harry Cook, Kaleb Grove, Audrey Deleon, Lucas Goff, Bryce King, and Emri Kunz.  
 Homedale has always been a competitor, but hasn’t been able to fill the weights in the years past and this year was no different. Weiser capitalized on six matches where they won by forfeit. They also won three other matches due to falls and handled this opening tournament well.  
 Results for the match were:
 98 Wyatt Black won by fall.
 106 Eric Ramirez lost.
 113 Mickel Drydale won by forfeit.
 120 Charlie Nevarez won by forfeit.
 126 Weston Black won by forfeit.
 132 Cole Ingle lost.
 138 Cale Brassfield lost.
 145 Weiser forfeit.
 152 Stockton Young won by forfeit.
 160 Luke Sarich won by fall.
 170 Kash Cobb won by fall.
 182 Lucas Goff won by forfeit.
 195 double forfeit.
 220 Kaleb Grove won by decision 3-1.
 285 Kaiden Peck won by forfeit.
 Weiser ended the match with a score of 57-24.
 Homedale and New Plymouth wrestled each other next and then it was Weiser vs. New Plymouth.  
 New Plymouth is a seasoned wrestling squad and always good competition for the Wolverines.  This year was no different. New Plymouth brought a full squad and Weiser did give up 6 points by forfeit in the 145 weight class, but the Wolverines would prevail and take the match with a score of 45-42. 
 Those in the crowd got a good look at Kash Cobb’s wrestling prowess taking his match by fall in just 15 seconds.  Wyatt Black and Kaleb Grove both won their matches by fall in 1:26 and 1:35 respectively.
 Results from the match include:
 98 Wyatt Black won by fall.
 106 Eric Ramirez lost.
 113 Mickel Drydale lost.
 120 Charlie Nevarez won by fall.
 126 Weston Black won by fall.
 132 Cole Ingle won by fall.
 138 Cale Brassfield lost.
 145 Weiser forfeit.
 152 Stockton Young won by decision 5-4.
 160 Luke Sarich lost.
 170 Kash Cobb won by fall.
 182 Lucas Goff lost.
 195 Telsyn Hawker won by fall.
 220 Kaleb Grove won by fall.
 285 Kaiden Peck lost.
 Weiser then travelled to Buhl for the weekend tournament. Eight varsity level gentlemen made the trip and the ladies and JV headed to Canyon Ridge for a tournament.  
 The Buhl tournament is a tough one that has a lot of different competition and some that can affect seeding criteria. Weiser had five of the eight athletes place at the competition and all of them got to wrestle some quality matches. Finishing in fifth place was Stockton Young at 152 and Lucas Goff at 182.  Second place takers were Luke Sarich at 160 and Kaleb Grove at 195.  
 Kash Cobb again had a great couple of days of wrestling and showed what he could do taking first place at the 170 weight class.  He received a bye his first round and then won by fall in his next three matches against Wendell, Buhl, and Sugar-Salem. In the final match he won by decision to take first place with a score of 8-6.
 The ladies were in Canyon Ridge competing and had some placers as well. Corianna Parsons and Tori Brown both finished in sixth place while Audrey Deleon took second. Aliyah Alhilla finished in first place and had a bye her first match followed by three consecutive wins by fall to take the tournament.  The ladies will be headed to Columbia High School next weekend for the Jaybird Invite.
 The men will be travelling to Nevada Thursday for the Gold City Duals at Elko High School and then on to Spring Creek for the weekend tournament.  Go Wolverine Wrestling!
