The Buffalo High School wrestling team is fighting hard, according to coach Jay Camino, but still struggling and looking to improve enough to post more wins.
The Bison were at Cheyenne South over the weekend to compete in the conference duals, and had mixed results.
Although some individuals wrestled well, as a team they are still struggling to post wins.
Individually, Jonathon Land went undefeated at 7-0, defeating two larger foes at 119.
At 135, Brandon Leis went 5-3; and at 145, Taylor Bell went 4-3 on the weekend.
Matt Myrick, at 189, finished the weekend 5-2.
Other records from the weekend included Darby Scantling at 103 finishing 0-5; Colter Manley at 145 going 2-5; at 160, Muhammad Khan finishing 1-6; and Cody Sandburn, at 215, going 2-3.
As a team, the Bison lost to Douglas 66-9, Torrington 45-24, Newcastle 51-24, Wheatland 48-24, Glenrock 45-18, and Rawlins 48-27.
Buffalo defeated Thermopolis 39-6 and South 37-36.
Camino said, “This has been a great start to the year. Our kids are working hard and improving. We have some young and new talent that is showing promise and I love our work ethic.”
The Bison will be off over Christmas break but will be back in action Jan. 4 at home against Gillette and then will travel to Douglas for the Shane Shatto Memorial Tournament Friday, January 7 and Saturday, January 8.
