Wrestling club challenges Nevada’s best

The South Tahoe Wrestling Club challenged Northern Nevada’s best wrestlers and inclement weather to partake in its first tournament of 1998 at Wooster High School in Reno last Saturday. The wrestlers who went to the tournament were impressive, considering having only three practices for preparation.

Thirty-seven wrestlers competed for the South Tahoe Wrestling Club. The 5-6-year-old peewee division included Sean Sullivan, Jared Bracket, Cole Baginski, Cody Shindelbower, Cameron Roth, Wade Marshall, Walker Marshall and Brett Hartley. The 7-8-year-old bantam division was filled by Patrick Reilly, Dane Hexberg, Veronica Jenks-Anton, Kendall Coates, Caleb Noble, Mitch Taggart, Jake Baker, Tanner Brennan and Chase Baginski. The 9-10-year-old midget division was represented by Tyler Baginski, Austin Jenks-Anton, Jack Williams, Lee Williams and Miles Wallace. The 11-12-year-old novice division had Christian Jenks-Anton, Joshua Shindelbower, Cody McClough, Randy Henson, Adam Wagner, Matt Shively, Sean Huddler, J.P. Foster and Chris Botieri. The 13-14-year-old schoolboy division was filled by Matt Fry, Justin Nixon and Travis Shindelbower. The 15-16-year-old cadets wrestlers were Ryan Wallace, Jeff Koeck and Joe Hyatt.

The 25 placers were: first – Austin Jenks-Anton, Nixon and Koeck; second – Roth, Marshall, Reilly, Noble and Foster; third – Veronica Jenks-Anton, Coates, Botieri, Fry, Shindelbower and Wallace; fourth – Hartley, Brennan, Wagner, Huddler and Hyatt; fifth – Baker and Wallace; sixth – Baginski, Hexberg, Marshall and Shively.

Wallace, Shindelbower and Silveira did a fine job with helping with the refereeing of the tournament.

Coaches Dan Henson, David Borges, Duane Wallace, Dwight Borges, Pat Baginski, Shane Johnson, Chris Bracket, Roger Koeck, Lauren Roth, Chris Marshall, Mike Fry and Doug Nixon are excited by the promising future of the wrestlers. The practice team size of 94 continues to welcome sign-ups throughout the rest of the season. The sooner the wrestlers can start practice, the better prepared they will be for the Nevada State Freestyle State Wrestling Tournament at South Tahoe High School on March 27.

The next wrestling tournament is Jan. 31 at Galena High in Reno. Practices continue to be at the South Tahoe Middle School on Mondays and Wednesdays, 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. for the younger group and 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. for the older group.

The community is encouraged to come and watch the practices to see South Tahoe youth in a structured and physically challenging environment. It’s also an opportunity to see if your child might like to participate in wrestling. For details about participating with the South Tahoe Wrestling Club, call Borges at (530) 544-5800.
