Boys Junior Varsity Wrestling, Boys Varsity Wrestling · Dow Wrestlers do well in Shepherd

SHEPHERD — Brent Booth finished in second place at 215 pounds and was one of six Dow High wrestlers to place at the Shepherd Invitational on Saturday.

Sam Martin (130 pounds) took third for the Chargers, while Brennan Doyle (140) and Zack Peterson (171) placed fifth, and Dustin Fletcher (145) and Jacob Sweet (103) were sixth.

“We only (brought) nine guys today (because) we had some injuries and illnesses happening,” said Dow coach Gary Hollingshead. “So (to have) six place, that’s not too bad.”

The Chargers wrestle at the Saginaw Valley League Tournament at Lapeer next Saturday.

“I’d like to be in the top five — (we) might even be able to get top four (in the SVL tournament),” Hollingshead said. “It’s pretty tough competition — Davison and Lapeer are in there, Midland beat us this year, and Bay City Western (beat us) — but I count on my guys to work hard, and what we get is what we deserve.”
