Wrestlers wrap up 10 wins at Clear Creek

Sometimes in high school wrestling, a team can dominate its opponent in nearly every match and still not take home a win for the meet.

Confused? Well, so was the Summit High wrestling squad Thursday night.

The Tigers won 10 out of 12 matches in a dual meet at Clear Creek High School but, due to a number of forfeits in uncontested weight classes, Clear Creek won the meet by three points.

“You’d think that winning 10 of 12, you’d win the match,” SHS head coach Mark Wall said. “It’s not a big deal, though. I’m happy with how we did.”

Summit had four wrestlers win two matches apiece on the night.

Senior Nate Roe beat both of his opponents decisively. The first was on a pin.

While Wall was excited to see one of his leaders have such a strong night, he was also excited about seeing sophomore Jon Ramirez take down two Clear Creek wrestlers as well.

“He’s a young guy and new to the sport, and he had a good night winning both those matches,” the coach said.

Will McDonald and Devon Emerson also won twice each on the night.

The other two Tiger wins came from Trevor Barton and Jahan Rafie.

Overall, Wall was pleased with what he saw from his team but felt that his wrestlers can still improve.

“I found out tonight that we still have little mistakes that we’re making,” he said. “I’ve got a list of things that we’ll be doing (in practice).”

The Tigers split their two dual meets of the season with Clear Creek, winning an early matchup at SHS in December. Now the focus is shifting back to tournaments and gearing up for the regional meet.

Summit travels to Evergreen Saturday for an invitational tourney, which starts at 9 a.m.

Wall, as he does in every tournament, is looking for a lot out of his team.

“It looks like we can match up well in that one,” he said. “We’re going into it looking to finish the way we have lately, and that’s top-five. I guess you could say that’s what we expect now.”
