Sam Jameson, Seth Warren and Steve Gutschenritter won first place medals in their divisions for the Glenwood wrestling team in a runner-up team finish at the Rollin Dyer Invitational on Saturday in Atlantic.
The host Trojans edged Glenwood 255.5 to 205 in the team scoring. Johnston was a distant third with 172 points.
Jameson (112-pounds), Warren (119) and Gutschenritter (135) breezed into their title matches undefeated and finished the day that way. In all, eight Rams made the finals of their weight classes.
“The guys really came together after Tuesday’s loss against Creston and put together a pretty good tournament,” said Glenwood coach Matt Dyer. “This was one of the best team efforts I had seen from our team in a long time. We had eight (wrestlers) in finals and three won it so it was a good day. “Everyone got down to weight and this will help make our team stronger in the long run. We have one more date before the break, so we want to keep this momentum going and close out the month of December with some dual wins.”
The Rams will take the next two weeks off for Christmas before next being in action at Red Oak on Jan. 6.
