Summit Squirts off to undefeated start

Goalie Michael Woodward made 13 saves during the Nov. 9 contest.
O’Neill continued his scoring binge the next day, Nov. 10, in a 10-9 win against Pueblo. O’Neill and Abrahamson each scored four goals. Hinton and Jon Gutierrez also scored for Summit.
Other team members are Dylan Junkermeier, Dak Dice, Dylan Horan, Cullen Moran, Drake Blass, Billy Grosshuesch, Bobby Ruddle and Victoria Serra.
Little Tiger wrestlers showing promise
The Little Tigers Wrestling Club has had two of its four meets so far this season. The kindergarten through sixth-grade wreslters started Oct. 26 in Lake County and followed that with a meet Nov. 9 at Buena Vista.
The squad was depleted at Buena Vista due to snowy weather, but there were still some good results. All the competitors finished third or fourth.
Earlier, at Lake County, J.J. and Jozy Gessner placed second and third respectively; veteran wrestler Paul Colvin was third, as was newcomer Creed Wilson; Chase McGinley and Sean West also finished third in their divisions. The brother-sister duo of Arin and Caitlin Buchanan each took fourth in their divisions, and Duncan Roberts was second. Cassidy Carr finished fifth.
The Little Tigers, who are coached by Jim Melvin, spent last week preparing for Saturday’s meet at Eagle Valley High School. The team practices Tuesday and Thursday evenings at Summit High School.
Melvin was predicting big things from Wilson, who has shown a lot of potential as a 7-year-old in his first year with the program. West and Arin Buchanan are also wrestling well, Melvin said, and veteran Brian Stoneback has been solid. Seven-year-old Andrew Maginity is showing promise as a rookie.
