Monett Cubs wrestling drops pair at Republic double dual

Friday, January 7, 2011

The Monett Cubs wrestling team dropped a pair of dual matches at Republic Thursday night.

"This was a good opportunity to see how far we have progressed from the start of the season, especially some of our younger and inexperienced wrestlers," said Monett Head Coach Daryl Bradley. "Overall I was pleased with the individual results," Bradley added. "Of course, I want to win every dual, but at this point in the season I am concerned with getting our varsity and junior varsity teams quality mat time and improving every match. I am starting to see our kids compete in every match, especially facing adversity."

Against McDonald County, the Cubs won six of the 10 varsity matches and six of the eight JV matches.

Winning individual matches against McDonald County for the Cubs were:


* 119 pounds: Tyler Liggett

* 145 pounds: Christian Alveraldo

* 145 pounds: Devon Overall

* 145 pounds: James Ross

* 171 pounds: Matthew Wentz

* 285 pounds: Shawn Beeson

"I knew coming in that we matched up well with McDonald County. We just didn't get it done," said Bradley. "The bottom line is that we need to take advantage of the opportunities that are given to us. When we start to do this, we will see more duel victories."
