Trojans grapplers dismantle Mojave

The Trojans wrestlers traveled to Mojave last Wednesday and soundly beat the Rattlers 67-6.

The varsity team’s thirteen wins included eight pins, five of them in under two minutes, and three in under four minutes. The other varsity wins were with one major decision, three decisions and one forfeit. Varsity lost only one match.

After beating Mojave, wrestling Coach Craig Rieger said, “I do like this senior group that’s been around for four years—all the hard work, the morning practices and never taking a day off besides Sunday. I just feel like they’ve worked like wrestlers should, and it pays off every year for them. We have a goal—that state tournament, and I said, we’re not going to stop until that state tournament’s done.”
