South Tahoe wrestlers experience after holiday woes

The holidays gave South Tahoe High wrestling coach Jack Lopez unexpected and unwanted gifts: His team shrank and several team members ate a little too much.

“The first match after the holidays sometimes you come back a little too chubby,” said Lopez following his Vikings’ defeats to Wooster and Reed on Wednesday in Reno.

“We should have never lost to Wooster, but we didn’t wrestle well and we didn’t wrestle with a full team. We sure would like another chance at Wooster.”

After starting the season with the luxury of filling all of the weight classes, the Vikings forfeited some matches in its double dual.

Wooster defeated the Vikings 45-24 for its first league win, despite forfeiting matches to Cavin Ross, Brad Ross and J.T. Davis.

Cavin Ross raised his impressive season record to 26-1 with a third-period pin in a 56-24 setback to Reed. Davis and Brad Ross picked up forfeit wins.

South Tahoe, 1-4 in the Northern Nevada 4A League and 9-7 overall, travels to Elko for a dual tournament Jan. 19.
