Two Bulldogs take first place at home wrestling invitational

(Continued)

"He beat a couple quality opponents," Fairfield coach Steve Miller said. "He just wrestled smart today. [He] got some pins for us, got some good team points. Just a good day by him."

"I didn't get nervous and I did what we went over in practice," Lunsford added.

Other Bulldogs who enjoyed a considerable degree of success in the tournament included Aleck Clark, who took third at 106 pounds, and Jack Stabile, who took third at 113 pounds. For Clark, it was another rock-solid effort, for Stabile it was a breakthrough day for the young sophomore wrestler who still sports a below .500 record.

"Jack Stabile had a great day," Frueh said.

Despite a few lapses here and there, the Bulldog coach was OK with his team's performance.

"That second to last round, we probably weren't favored in a lot of those matches," Frueh said, and we didn't win any of those. But need to start winning some of those even when we're not favored. We lost a few clsoe ones that cost us.

"Our last round was good. We're getting closer and we're working hard. Not bad at all."

As for the Trojans coach, he's optimistic about the program's future.

"I'm pleased with the overall effort, we just have a lot technical stuff and mental things to work on but, I'm overall pleased with the direction we're going."

Burlington took first overall as a team with 215 points and Ottumwa nabbed fourth place with 187.5, finishing just 1.5 points behind third place Des Moines East. Fairfield finished seventh with 87 points and the Ottumwa junior varsity team took eighth with 66.

Ottumwa (6-7) hits the road to take on Des Moines Lincoln at 7:30 p.m. Thursday at Des Moines Lincoln High School.
