The Superior High School wrestling team lost to Spooner/Webster 54-27 Thursday, Dec. 20, in the SHS gym.

“We went up against a very solid team but I was very happy with the way our guys wrestled,” SHS coach Bob Coleman said. “Our objective was to control what we can control - our attitude and effort. We were going to just go out and wrestle aggressively and let the wins and loses take care of themselves, which we really do not have control of.”

Five Spartans won their matches, led by brothers Wyatt Johnson (106 pounds) and Tucker Johnson (113). Wyatt pinned James Melton in 5:37, while Tucker pinned Jerico Skluzacek in the first period.

“Wyatt really wrestled a tough match,” Coleman said. “He got himself in some tough situations but battled through and then came up with a big win. His brother, Tucker, started out with a double-leg takedown and never let up. He also came up with a nice pin.”

Caden Stone also won an 8-4 decision over Zachery Kubnick, and Landon Lathrop (138) and Ethan Raye (152) won via forfeits.

“Caden was in a battle the entire match but really did a solid job to end up on top,” Coleman said. “I really feel everyone of our wrestlers took a big step and showed some improvement. I’m very proud of them. Wrestling is a very tough sport and in today’s world it’s hard to find people to take big risks like these guys have to come out for a sport that is so demanding.

“These young men are really sending a message that they are here to compete and never quit.  Which will carry over to other sports and in the classroom.”

The Spartans, who also competed in the Cameron Jamboree Friday, will wrestle in the Eau Claire Memorial Invitational beginning at 9:15 a.m. on Friday, Dec. 28.
