Jay grapplers host dual tournament

Junior 120-pound KaLeigh Mortorff dominates this Aurburn wrestler during their bout at the Sabetha Wrestling Tournament Saturday, December 9.

The Sabetha Bluejay wrestling squad hosted the 2017 Sabetha Dual Wrestling Invitational on Saturday, Dec. 9. This year’s tournament featured six teams from Nebraska and Kansas — Auburn, Humboldt-Table Rock Steinauer, Pleasant Ridge, Wamego and Washburn Rural.

The Jays went 3-2 on the day. The Jays defeated HTRS 63-12, Pleasant Ridge 51-24, and Wamego 54-15. The Jays were defeated by Washburn Rural 50-21, and Auburn 40-39. The Jays actually tied Auburn 39-39 but lost on a tiebreaker based on matches won.

Freshman 113-pound Kaden Dillon takes this HTRS wrestler to the mat during the Sabetha Wrestling Tournament Saturday, December 9.

“I was extremely pleased with our efforts today,” said Head Coach Ricky Creek. “We won some big matches today. We lost a few matches today.”

Junior 195-pound Cauy Rokey takes this Washburn Rural wrestler to the mat with a double leg takedown during the Sabetha Wrestling Tournament Saturday, December 9.

“I told the kids that there are no state champions crowned in December. That happens in February,” he said. “We will continue to get better and work on things that need to be corrected.”

The Jays were led by junior 195-pound Cauy Rokey, who was 5-0 on the day. Two of those wins came by forfeits and the other three were first period pins of all three opponents.

Sophomore 160-pound Walker Lowdermilk also went 5-0 on the day, with two of those coming on forfeits and the other three wins by pins.

Freshman 113-pound Kaden Dillon continued his fast start on the season with five wins. Three of those were by forfeits, and the other two came by a fall and a dominating 19-7 win.

The Jay grapplers will return to the mat beginning at 6 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 14, when the Holton Wildcats come to town.
